AmericaJR’s Gloria and Jerome Rzucidlo recently visited Robert C. Valade Park along the Detroit Riverfront. 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.  Through socially-distanced fun, the riverfront will provide a much needed place of respite for our community. Winter at Valade Hours – Friday 5-9, Saturday 12-9, Sunday 12-7.

Visit Valade Park at 2670 E. Atwater St. in Detroit, MI. For more info, go to
