Robert C. Valade Park in Detroit (Jason Rzucidlo/AmericaJR)

The AmericaJR Web Team recently visited Robert C. Valade Park along the Detroit Riverfront. It features an expansive, sandy beach with chairs and umbrellas, a children’s musical garden, colorful play scapes for kids to climb on, a community barbecue pavilion and Bob’s Barge, which is Detroit’s only floating bar.  The park is also home to The Shed, a 3,600-square-foot building that will be used for food, events and programming.  Robert C. Valade Park includes an important bridge along the RiverWalk, which connects Stroh River Place to Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre, two of the most popular destinations along the riverfront.

Visit Robert C. Valade Park at 2670 Atwater Street Detroit, MI 48207. For more info, go to
