Now Open: Detroit RiverWalk Unveils Western Extension

New, 26 comments

[Detroit Riverfront Conservancy]

The path spans the twenty-acre site that used to hold the Detroit Free Press printing plant, which is now green space. Before you head out there, take a look at a photo of the space before improvements began—it really helps appreciate how much things have changed.
