I visited the RiverWalk during winter time and I didn't quite understand the monument that looks like a shower. Reviewing pictures taken during summer I understood. What a nice place to go with kids when the sun is shining and the temperature is warm.

It was February, so it was cold, but it was still nice to walk around and take pictures - Windsor Ontairo was right across the Detroit river, and the Lights at night were so pretty!

We visited on a chilly Sunday morning, with a bright sun and clear views across to Canada. There are a few monuments and statues to checkout, there were not a lot of people when we visited which made the experience even better. Be carful as there is a few spots where there are missing bricks in the pavement or ice... More

With a bitter, cold wind coming from Windsor we had the Plaza to ourselves as rain threatened ! Starting to show its age with uneven pavers & slightly unkempt area. Facilities locked up solid so had to find elsewhere but it is possibly more welcoming in the warmer months ?

I went there for the movement, so you may found 6 different stages, everything well located and even a place to chill during the day, i loved the fountain and it's good for huge events like that one..!

There are a lot of free concerts and festivals on the July weekends and sometimes in August. Name jazz artists and other and great food. A fund place to be.

Was staying in a hotel that looked over this thing for a week, it didn't operate once. Nor did I see many, if any, people hanging around it. Get a photo as you walk past, job done.

Hart Plaza has an excellent location on the Detroit River. It has some interesting public art and historical markers. It is better, of course, in warm weather.

The park has great views and is located on the Detroit River. There are many wonderful structures with great historical significance. The area needs some rebuilding.
