Bert Weeks Memorial Gardens
Monday July 16, 9:00 a.m.
Bert Weeks Memorial Gardens is located at the foot of Parent street on Riverside Drive.
Come out and paint the Detroit Skyline with us on Monday. There is also the historic pump station and naturalized areas of the river nearby.
This is a great location with no parking meters. However, the lot can get full fast. The parking is free for 2 hours. You will be within sight of your car at all times. There are some shade trees nearby. I didn’t see any washrooms, but there are many fast food chains on Wyandotte St east.

Paint/Sketch out Gil Maure Park, LaSalle
Monday June 8th, 9:30 A.M.
Located on the Detroit River in LaSalle, at the foot of Lafferty Ave, this park offers some unique views, including the steel plants on the U.S. side. You will often find swans and other water fowl on the river. If you look up river you have many islands including Fighting Island directly opposite the park.
There is no way to predict what the weather will be like, but here is a link to a good weather site that gives hourly updates on the weather.

closed toe shoes with socks, long pants & long sleeves prevents sunburn & bug bites
