The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy was formed to develop access on the Detroit International Riverfront with a vision of redeveloping more than five miles of Riverfront property from the Ambassador Bridge to Gabriel Richard Park (just east of the Belle Isle Bridge). The nonprofit is working to construct a continuous Riverwalk dotted with plazas, pavilions, and green spaces. The Riverwalk is open despite the COVID-19 pandemic, but playgrounds along the river are closed. Restrooms are still open with increased cleaning protocols. The conservancy is hosting virtual tours and concerts, socially distant gatherings on the Riverwalk to provide social and emotional support to those affected by COVID-19, and (Not-So) Spooky Saturdays for free family-friendly activities including a pumpkin patch, children’s music, stories, candy, kids yoga, and more.
