The wonderful view and a great job with river walkway. I had great time I had not been down to riverfront in years. The sight and attraction were beautiful well done.
My granddaughters enjoy playing in water fountain up and down. Festival and live music with different activity. I Will go back next year.

Our condo has access to the Riverwalk and we love to walk or bike the length of it. It has gives you access to the Dequindre Cut for biking as well. We like to walk to Chene Park or Rattlesnake Club and never have to move the car. Great views and always a breeze.

I often visit the RiverFront. The water is so peaceful, I've rented bikes from "Wheelhouse", right on the walk. It's been extended to the Westside of Jefferson, where more people seem to go for fishing, since it's not as busy as the main section. No matter the season you go, you'll always find someone exercising....running,biking walking and there is a group that meets twice a week for group exercise. It's a carousel for the children, a beach volleyball court and a nice marsh. Many of our local festivals are held here. There's a statue exhibit, telling of the underground railroads, from Canada to America and other outdoor art exhibits. If you ever come to Detroit, it's worth the visit in the heart of Downtown!!

Detroit has done a SUPER job in restoring their waterfront. I'm a native Detroiter that now lives in Chicago. I recently returned for a reunion with my cousins and we enjoyed a stroll along the waterfront. I have never seen the waterfront look as it good as it does now.

We enjoyed hot dogs for lunch at a stand that was near the parking area. They also have installed a beautiful merry go-round. The bathrooms were also very clean.

Go and enjoy a beautiful walk in a city that is coming back!

We arrived by train in the afternoon and took a walk around the downtown. We loved the park and its Labor Monuments that are on the riverfront as well as the fresh air and lovely walkway. It was very active and people were running and walking all around. There is a beautiful view of the bridge to Canada.
