  • Lots to see and do at the waterfront gardens and parks on the banks of the Detroit river. Bring some water and a snack and you can easily spend a few hours as all the parks and gardens continue in...

  • 78 Riverside Drive West Dieppe Gardens are named in memory of the many members of the Essex-Kent Scottish Regiment who lost their lives during the World War II landing at Dieppe, France in 1942. The park is heavily planted with brilliantly coloured annuals and perennials. It features many monuments, including monuments to the Canadian Army, Navy and Air Force. For years, the property was used as a docking site by the Detroit-Windsor Ferry Company, and several cottages, retail stores, hotels and other businesses were established. In the late 1950s, these buildings were purchased and demolished by the City so that the site could be developed into a major riverfront park. Highlights: Waterfall and Fish Pond Launch Site for Cruises Peace Beacon Amenities: Benches Concession Monuments Picnic Tables
  • Beautiful park right on the waterfront. Great place to walk around with a number of sculptures along the water. Wonderful view of Detroit across the river. They have a number of picnic tables available as well to sit at, making it a nice place to eat after getting take out at one of many options downtown.
