A labor day tradition Hart Plaza is a great venue for the world's largest, free Jazz Fest! An amazing line-up of world class musicians. Enjoy the breeze while strolling down the beautiful riverfront walkway designed by Isamu Noguchi and Shuji Sadao. Great to see people enjoying themselves and appreciating the living history of Detroit.

The plaza has a signature water structure which is really nice and it is right on the water front. The breeze you can get from the water and the open area to sit and relax. A really nice place...

Thoroughly enjoyed this year's Jazz Fest and the three performance venues right off Hart Plaza. And it was fantastic to see the FOUNTAIN fully restored in all its glory! A true Detroit gathering place.

My friend and I went to hear the Jazz festival in Hart Plaza. Great venue facing the riverfront of Detroit River. Beautiful statues through out the plaza. The most breathe taking is the one of Underground Statuary and Memorial on the Detroit River facing Windsor, Canada.

Hart Plaza is located along the riverfront. There are frequent activities, events, concerts. Great place to take a stroll and very easy to locate. All is walkable.

Hart Plaza is a hub of activity for festivals and events downtown, but it also offers a hint of history, reminding visitors of the use of the Detroit River for the Underground Railroad, helping salves escape the country to have freedom in Canada.

The Jazz coming from the Hart Plaza is so authentic and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Our hotel is located across the street from this venue.

A nice part of downtown this piece of art has been in Detroit for many years now and always draws a large crowd of people. It's nice to get a splash of water when it is very hot

Some interesting pieces of architecture. The proximity of Canada and the escape of slaves across the river to freedom was something I had never thought about.
