Detroit Parks

Some key recommendations from the West Riverside planning meeting included possibly moving Riverside Park from its current location next to the Ambassador Bridge, closer to downtown. I was shocked that I didn’t know of its existence and plan on trekking down there this weekend. The residents from that area were not happy at all with that proposal, which I can understand. I naively asked why they just could not build another park and the answer was that Detroit’s parks are underserved as it is. Another recommendation was the possibility of extending Rosa Parks Blvd down to a monument and/or park like Campus Martius at the river. All the plans sound lovely to me but I am trying not to get too excited as we yet to get investors.
