Best spot in Detroit downtown. I would highly recommend it. It's great area for a walk and people watching. It's surrounded by bunch of fancy restaurants. Vibes are totally different in winter & summer. For parking - I would recommend to use public parking which is $10 per day.
Good place to walk around and enjoy the Detroit city views. Occasionally events or things happen at the park but nothing like other parks around the Detroit area. Its a nice park but does require quite some work, which seems to be in progress. Much potential within this park, but perhaps in the future.
