Opened to the public on May 2009, the Dequindre Cut is an urban recreational path. This two-mile-long greenway is a pedestrian link between the East Riverfront, Eastern Market, and surrounding residential neighborhoods. The goal is to transform Detroit's riverfront into a safe, vibrant, and accessible gathering place for everyone.
Predominantly below street level, the paved pathway has lanes for both pedestrians and cyclists. Along the greenway are brilliant examples of the city's urban artwork and graffiti.
Throughout the year, the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy hosts various special events and weekly programs. There is always something to do for everyone, from literacy programs and herbal walks, to yoga and tai chi.
