  • I was just here with a friend of mine and he didn’t want to go for a walk because he’s “busy” today. It’s a perfect 21C today so we didn’t a short walk through the park and even he had to admit it...

  • Lovely view of river and islands. The gardening is beautiful and well kept and is smoke free. Great place to sit back and relax on a nice day.

  • Beautiful city park along the Detroit river. Peaceful and quiet with lots of trees and walkways. Plenty of benches to sit and contemplate the world around you. Worth visiting.
  • Very nice spot! Beautiful gardens, trees and walking paths. Also, a pretty great for live music in the summer and having unique cafes all around.
