Construction Project: Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Centennial Park
Since construction began last June, tremendous progress has been made transforming the former West Riverfront Park into Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Centennial Park. Crews have poured walls for the William Davidson Sport House and are currently erecting structural steel columns and roof trusses, which will also include a custom skylight.
In the coming weeks, mass grading of the site will occur, which will allow for installation of underground utilities. Construction along the river is also progressing with the placement of steel supports to stabilize the river’s edge on the west end of the site. Stone placement in the river has started and will continue throughout summer. Excavation of the Water Garden will occur later this summer.
Ralph Wilson Park will feature the William Davidson Sport House, the Huron-Clinton Metroparks Water Garden, the Delta Dental Play Garden, and the expansive DTE Foundation Hill. The park will be complete in 2024.
