About Detroit East Riverfront

Leveraging the power of public, private and philanthropic partnerships the City of Detroit, General Motors and the Kresge Foundation formed the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy to transform Detroit's international riverfront from surface parking lots and cement silos to continuous riverwalk enriched with episodic community experiences.

Attracting over three million visitors annually the riverfront provides a clean and safe urban place to enjoy year around.
