What is Rivière28?

Rivière28 is a group of active Detroit riverfront enthusiasts dedicated to encouraging lifelong support of the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy and its mission by hosting programs and events on, and in support of, the RiverWalk, Dequindre Cut Greenway, and associated parks, plazas, and green spaces.


                                          What does Rivière28 do?

                                          The mission of Rivière28 is to introduce young adults to the Detroit riverfront and to promote their lifelong involvement with the

                                          Detroit RiverFront Conservancy.

                                          To accomplish this mission, Rivière28 will initiate activities that encourage active professionals to:

                                                     1) visit the Detroit riverfront;

                                                    2) become members of “Friends of the RiverWalk” and Rivière28;

                                                    3) participate in Rivière28 events and programs; and

                                                    4) develop a better understanding of the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy as an organization.


                                         Please come out and join Rivière28 at its special events to support the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy!
