Detroit Michigan is undergoing major renovations and the best example of this is the renovation of West Riverfront Park.
Privately owned for close to 100 years, and closed to the public until 2014, renovations on the park are projected to be completed by 2022.
About the renovations
There’s no doubt that once Detroit’s West Riverfront Park is completed it’s going to attract a lot more interest in the downtown area because, it’s going to have to a cove right off the river, sandy beach, kayak launch, jetty for fishing and so much more!
Projected to cost well over $100 million, the makeover of the West Riverfront Park area is going to transform a dying area into a thriving outdoor space that people will know and love for generations to come.
Thankfully, it was recently announced that the Ralph C Wilson Jr. Foundation will be investing $200 million dollars into the project, ensuring that it will be completed on time by 2022.
An important part of the city
Urban parks, green spaces and trail systems always play a major role in every major city in the world. This can especially be seen in New York with Central Park, the North Pond Nature Sanctuary in Chicago and Boston Common in the wonderful city of Boston.
Besides attracting people from all over the world; parks and green spaces also have a huge impact on local communities. They break down barriers, promote inclusiveness and connect people together of all ages and from all walks of life.
The heart of the Detroit riverfront renovations is going to be the Ralph C Wilson Jr. Centennial Park which will be at the current site of the West Riverfront Park.
Ralph C Wilson Jr. was a respected businessman and founder of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills. Although he died in 2014 at the age of 95, there’s no doubt that once the West Riverfront Park project is completed it will be something that he will be remembered for.
