Gabriel Richard Park

Located at: 42° 20' 46.5216" N, 82° 59' 55.3416" W

This beloved City of Detroit park is located just east of the MacArthur Bridge to Belle Isle. The Detroit RiverFront Conservancy has enhanced the area with a plaza and a pavilion located along the river's edge.

Located at the eastern-most point of the RiverWalk, this riverfront gem is a beautiful and serene oasis that features lush landscaping, a whimsical fountain, butterfly gardens, a contemplative labyrinth and fishing outlooks.

New enhancements to Gabriel Richard Park unveiled in 2015 include an environmentally-friendly parking lot and pathways to better link the park with Jefferson Avenue, lighting the labyrinth and new restroom facilities. Additionally, a new birding station features four wildlife-spotting scopes (two of which are universally-accessible) and an interpretive panel identifying various birds that can be found along the riverfront.
