Hart Plaza

Named in honor of Senator Philip A. Hart, the riverfront plaza is the site of many of Detroit's most popular events. It features several amphitheaters, an ice skating rink and public art works. It is adjacent to Cobo Center on the Detroit river front, and may be scheduled for use during events.

The Detroit Riverfront

Cobo Center is situated on the bank of the Detroit River, with spectacular views of Windsor, Ontario and the busy river shipping traffic.  The Detroit RiverFront Conservancy, Inc. was formed in 2003 with the mission of developing access on the Detroit International Riverfront. The entire vision is 5 ½ miles of Riverfront property, from the Ambassador Bridge to Gabriel Richard Park, just east of the Belle Isle Bridge, and will include the construction of a continuous RiverWalk along with plazas, pavilions and green spaces.  The Detroit Riverfront can be scheduled for event space during your Cobo Center event through our sales department.  For more information on the Detroit Riverfront visit www.detroitriverfront.org
