On December 2nd we heard from Marc Pasco who is the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy Communications Director.
The Conservancy is dedicated to keeping the riverfront a beautiful, clean, and safe gathering place for all.  It is responsible for the establishment, improvement, operation, maintenance, security, programming, and expansion of the Detroit RiverWalk and associated green spaces.  The 5 ½ mile RiverWalk will ultimately run from MacArthur Park at Belle Isle to the Ambassador Bridge.
The east riverfront includes Gabriel Richard Park, Milliken State Park, Mt. Elliott Park, the Dequindre Cut, and the Robert C. Valade Park,  It also includes a boardwalk in front of the Stroh Rive Place and there are  discussions to have public space on the former Uniroyal property.
The west riverfront stretches from the Joe Louis Arena site to the Ambassador Bridge.  A boardwalk has been built over the water in front of the Riverfront Towers and there are ambitious plans when construction beings on the Ralph C. Wilson Centennial Park.  
Numerous events are held for the public every year, including a Fishing Fest, Touch-A-Truck, and River Days, to name a few.
