(DETROIT, MI) – It’s out with the ice and in with the beach at Detroit’s Campus Martius. The famed park is located in a downtown Woodward Avenue traffic circle and yesterday marked the official opening of the urban beach.
Highlights included a showcase of IKEA’s summer furniture collection.
Last year’s The Fountain Detroit restaurant, fashioned out of a trans-ocean shipping container, has also been placed in the park alongside the beach. As well, lunch seekers will be able to choose from a variety of options offered by food trucks as part of Downtown Street Eats.
Beach hours henceforth will be daily from 6:00am to 10:00pm. Daily midday music concerts are also planned.
