Bert Weeks Memorial Gardens
Monday September 3rd, 9:00 a.m.
Bert Weeks Memorial Gardens 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 should be within sight of your car. There are some shade trees nearby. I didn’t see any washrooms, but there are many fast food chains on Wyandotte St east.
