Along its 3.5-mile route, the RiverWalk offers breathtaking views of the Detroit River and city skyline. Recreational opportunities abound as the trail links Milliken State Park and numerous plazas and pocket parks. The 31-acre state park offers covered picnic areas, shoreline fishing, and a great photo opportunity with its 63-foot-tall lighthouse.
On its western end, the Renaissance Center—a cluster of seven interconnected skyscrapers, including the General Motors world headquarters—offers shopping, dining, lodging, and entertainment. A block from the RenCen, in Rivard Plaza, the beautiful, custom-made Cullen Family Carousel features animals all native to the Detroit River, except two: a sea serpent and a mermaid.
Roughly mid-way (at Atwater Street) you can make an easy connection to the Dequindre Cut Greenway, which heads north about a mile to Eastern Market, a commercial district centered around a popular six-block farmers market (open Saturdays) that has been in operation since 1891.
