Robert C. Valade Park

Robert C. Valade Park is the newest park to open along the East 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 each summer. The park is also home to The Shed, a 3,600-square-foot building that will be used for food, events and programming. This winter Valade Park will feature over-sized outdoor fire places, hot drinks, marshmallow roasters, the Sled Shed (featuring free sleds when it snows), synthetic ice curling, and more.

  • Daily 6 a.m.-10 p.m. Parking is available across from the park in a gravel lot located at the corner of Atwater and Chene. Valade Park is not available for rentals, and use of the community grill area is first come first serve, you may not hold tables. There is no outside alcohol allowed at Valade Park, or on the Detroit Riverwalk.
