WINTER ON THE RIVERFRONT
|Release Date: February 23, 2012|
Spring, summer, fall or winter - the Detroit riverfront is meticulously maintained. The upkeep of your riverfront continues throughout the winter months. From the beautiful winter plantings of Fraser Fir, Western Cedar and Red Twig along the RiverWalk, to our routine maintenance schedule of regular snow removal - our operations crew is hard at work to ensure that the riverfront remains beautiful, safe and accessible for all visitors. The cold weather can bring a winter wonderland of training possibilities on the riverfront. In fact, the cross country men's and women's team from Wayne State University find the setting ideal for their cold-weather training.
With some understanding of how to prepare for chilly temperatures, and a willingness to venture into the cold, winter on the riverfront is an incredible time for outside fun and training opportunities.
During the winter months, our security team is also busy making sure that the RiverWalk and Dequindre Cut remain safe and secure for all visitors. By utilizing a number of measures including a state-of-the-art closed circuit television monitoring system, vehicle and foot patrols - the RiverWalk and Dequindre Cut is monitored year round, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
