We walked for about 6 miles total stopped to talk to other walkers (total strangers), enjoyed a cup of coffee and simply marvelled at the transformation that... More

Detroit has come a long way back and the Riverfront, which used to be non-accessible and run down, is now a gem with parks, fountains, exercise stations, lots of activity and people flocking down to the river. The views are excellent. The jogging, walking, etc. is great and now miles (I don't know how many) long. You should see it... More

A lovely walk or run, or even bike can be experienced here. They keep adding little places to eat, sprucing things up, and more and more people are here so it is getting fun to people watch. The Riverfront Society (or whatever their name is I cannot remember exactly) has frequent free or low cost events. We take out of... More

You can walk along the river for quite a long distance. It's lovely. Nicely manicured lawns, benches and walkway. Who knew?

the water is clean and the hundreds of pleasure crafts and the ocean freighter make this an special experience, especially with Canad just across the river. In the winter when its frozen, or in the spring when there are icebergs, its pretty terrific too. ,

If you want to see a nice place in downtown Detroit go to the River front walk, it was renovated recently and it is well patrolled by Police. There is place to sit around the Cafe, the water fountains are nice for the kids to play. You can park really near by the port off course you have to pay... More

Walking along the Riverwalk behind the Renaissance Center was wonderful during the month of August. I observed people riding their bikes, families having pizza picnics, families/friends fishing, walking and relaxing. People are truly enjoying this hidden gem. A Carousel is located along the walkway in addition to a sandlot volleyball section. There are other items also. I am looking forward... More

Grown up on Lake St Clair so being on an extension of it feels like home too. Beautifully appointed, lots of access, clean with stunning views.
