Arriving to Mt. Elliott Park

Parking is limited and we encourage visitors to prioritize arriving on foot, bike, roller skates, skateboards and other non-motorized transportation. Street parking and limited surface lot parking is available in the area of Mt. Elliott Park and along nearby sections of the Riverwalk.

At the end of the event, shuttles will be available to transport guests from Gabriel Richard Park back to Mt. Elliott Park. 


You're invited to join the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy in celebrating the completion of the 3.5-mile East Riverfront.

Twenty years ago, the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy worked with the community to create a vision for a Riverwalk that would bring people together at the water’s edge.

On Saturday, October 21, the Conservancy will celebrate the completion of our initial vision for 3.5-miles of the East Riverfront.

This final section of the East Riverfront will provide a connection between Mt. Elliott Park and Gabriel Richard Park and connect the Riverwalk to the Belle Isle Bridge.

Please join the Conservancy to celebrate this exciting milestone, and be one of the first people to experience this new connection along the Detroit Riverfront.

RSVP not required but is appreciated.
