Mingle with the locals, enjoy the views, and go for a stroll along Detroit RiverFront. This is one of the most popular hangout spots in the city, and you'll see many people fishing, jogging, and riding bikes next to the water. It's hard to beat this spot's views of Windsor, Ontario, on the Canadian side of the Detroit River. Choose a restaurant for a meal or a drink, or hop onto one of the boat tours if you're up for some sightseeing. The riverfront regularly hosts different events, celebrations, and music festivals. Check the events schedule online if you want to plan your visit accordingly, and join the party at the riverfront.

We went on the first day of the river days . the weather was absolutely perfect . The parking sucked and they had absolutely no parking for handicapped . I actually thought that that was illegal . There was plenty of empty room on Jefferson further east but we were told that the cars were being tagged and towed. There should have been handicap parking very close either in with the volunteers were parked or on the street . I was on a cane and my friend actually had to put a scooter together to get there. Absolutely not user-friendly and not everybody could enjoy it . The riverfront is beautiful ! But very difficult to get there in the grounds were very wet so it was very difficult to maneuver why we were there . The food was delicious ! Great idea for the park .
The Conservancy's vision early on, to rebuild and preserve the Detroit river front land for public access is a gift like none other to the people in southeastern Michigan and visitors. They are continuing to expand and renovate while keeping the area clean and accessible to all.
