This is a hidden gem. You don't see from the road the hidden waterfall. Very pretty. Great picture place?

The pools and gardens right at the river front are perfectly placed for any visitor to enjoy. Bert would have been so pleased to see how so many are enjoying his corner of the world, down at the river

This is a nice place to bring your family. The kids can play on the playground while you sit and enjoy the view. It is located right on the waterfront near downtown so it is very close to hotels and the border crossing but still a very quiet area. Nice place to stop by and relax.

This is a lovely little oasis along the Windsor shoreline of the Detroit-Windsor River. A tribute garden to a delightful former Mayor's memory.

The reflection pool and waterfall are so relaxing with the perfect fall weather day 26C / 82F. These gardens are east of Ouellette Ave and casino - located at Parent Ave approx 10 minute walk along the Detroit River. It is one of the many hidden jewels along the waterfront stretching from the Ambassador Bridge to Hiram Walkers (Walker Road... More
