  • We just happened upon this well-designed riverside park after going through GM’s lobby. Nice combination of experiences. Wetlands interpretive signage, art, benches, etc. Hearing crickets in a city...  more »
  • Paved walkway with scenic views of Windsor and the Detroit River. Benches, trash cans and emergency phones. The only negative is that the restrooms need posted open/closed hours.  more »

  • This is one of my favorite parks in the country. There is a surrealness of having such a park overlooking not only the turquoise Detroit River, but Windsor, Canada. It's incredible and gets better each year. They are increasing the ecological preservation each year while also improving its social impact. It's a great balance. This place is a must visit in Detroit. It's safe and well-maintained all times of the year. While it's really popular in the summer months, don't overlook visiting in the winter/end of winter. Watching the ice travel downstream is soothing and an incredible sight in and of itself.
  • The Detroit Riverwalk just keeps getting better and better - really amazed to see ducks 🦆, butterflies 🦋, bees 🐝, and frogs 🐸 on our recent walk through Milliken state park - great ice cream 🍦 too at the nearby concession stand. There is free public parking nearby and street parking as well. This is a great place to start for a long run 🏃‍♀️ or bike 🚲 ride through the riverfront parks or through Detroit and surrounding neighborhoods
