Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Detroit Riverfront Conservancy Inc.

Detroit, Michigan



The public-private partnership has created public access to Detroit’s riverfront and served as a catalyst for economic development in the city by developing five and a half miles of the riverfront, stretching from the Ambassador Bridge to the MacArthur (Belle Isle) Bridge. This funding supports the design and construction of a safe, inspiring play park adjacent to Rivard Plaza for children from underserved neighborhoods bordering the riverfront.
