The Detroit RiverFront Conservancy said it has opened Mt. Elliott Park in Detroit.
Mt. Elliott Park is the Conservancy´s third plaza and pavilion to be developed along the east riverfront´s more than three miles of completed pathways, parks and green space that are all connected by the vibrant RiverWalk.
To mark the opening and extraordinary public-private partnerships that have made the revitalization possible, the Conservancy joined together with its partners, funders, dignitaries and community leaders for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the transformed park. The Detroit Academy of Arts and Sciences choir performed at the opening event and were the first to enjoy the new amenities, including a new water feature.
The Detroit RiverFront Conservancy is a non-profit organization founded in 2003 with the mission to develop public access to Detroit´s riverfront and serve as an anchor for economic development. Visit www.detroitriverfront.org
