Summer Splash Park Fun on the Detroit Riverfront

Cool off in the water at the this Detroit splash park along the Detroit River, created by the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy.

There’s a spot in the D where your family can beat the heat and enjoy the views of the Detroit River, too.

With a Great Lakes schooner theme, the renovated Mt. Elliott Park & Pavilion riverfront splash park lures kids with water cannons and cascades that are prime for a summer splash.

The park, which was unveiled in 2014, is part of the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy’s mission to bring families and fun back to the Detroit River.

“Designed with a playful water feature and amenities for all ages, the new park will be another huge draw for visitors and families to this growing world-class destination,” says Matt Cullen, the conservancy’s board chairman.

Mt. Elliott is the third park to be redeveloped by the organization on its goal to develop five-and-a-half miles of riverfront, from west of the Ambassador Bridge to east of the MacArthur Bridge to Belle Isle.
