Grand Opening of Southwest Greenway

Wednesday, I, on behalf of Ask The Messengers TV Show, had the pleasure of attending the Grand Opening of the Southwest Greenway. In attendance were several dignitaries such as Mayor Mike Duggan, Chief of Staff/Office of the Governor, JoAnne Huls, Chairman of the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, Mathew Cullen and many more. Also in attendance were funding partners and many community members.

This was a celebration on successfully producing this pathway that provides easy access and a beautiful public space for Detroit residents and visitors. This path connects the Detroit Riverfront to the future Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Centennial Park to the Michigan Central campus and the Mexicantown, Hubbard Richard and Corktown Neighborhoods. $350 million was raised to fund these projects that will benefit future generations.
