Great civic project. Well used and maintained. All walks of life take a walk. This time of year quiet but still a must do. Nice natural area.

It was great to be able to stroll along the riverfront. Detroit is coming back. It was cold and none of the attractions or food stands were open. Looking forward to returning in the summer.

I wasn't expecting the riverfront in Detroit. Wow! They have done an amazing job. Lots of people walking even at night. It was fabulous.

Always walk the Riverwalk to get my "steps" in at lunchtime. Safe beautiful views of the RenCen, the Detroit River, Windsor and the Ambassador Bridge.

This gem is right there for you to explore, so many people enjoying the riverwalk, the sun shining off the river, kids running through the fountains, people doing yoga and riding bikes. Plenty of benches to stop and rest or just enjoy. Checkers and places to borrow books.

Great walkways, lovely scenery. You can look into another country from here, literally. Canada is just across the water. Great way to get some fresh air and exercise and enjoy the city all at once.
