The Detroit Riverwalk has come a long way, and it’s expected to improve even more over the next few years.
“We actually saw a 20% increase of people come to the Riverfront, 40% increase on the Dequindre Cut, which is amazing,” Wallace said.
Despite the setbacks that the COVID pandemic provided, the Riverwalk continued to grow.
“Last year we finished two major projects. One is an extension of the Riverfront for the old Joe Louis Arena site over the Riverfront towers and another is a boardwalk through that marina that brings you even closer to here,” Wallace said.
“Two full-size basketball courts and those can be programmed for basketball, for kickball, for indoor soccer. All sorts of stuff. Roller skating, we’re really excited about that,” Wallace said.
In the meantime, the West Riverfront will be home to many upcoming fun events like a block party that is set for this weekend.
