Valade Park will be the go-to destination on the riverfront this winter. The park will feature oversized outdoor fire chimneys, warm drinks, marshmallow roasters, the Sled Shed (featuring free sleds when it snows), synthetic ice curling, and more. The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy is committed to helping visitors embrace winter by extending our great riverfront programming year-round. Through socially-distanced fun, the riverfront will provide a much needed place of respite for our community.  Stay tuned to our facebook page for all the latest information.
