Schooner-themed water park a big hit

Mt. Elliott Park Water Feature

The Mt. Elliott Park Fun Shop serves the new Mt. Elliott Park splash feature with essentials to make your visit to the Detroit Riverwalk fun and convenient.  In addition to snacks, drinks and sandwiches; sunscreen, towels and outdoor toys you will find a unique gallery gift shop that showcases Detroit artists and artisans. 

Now open to the public, the completely renovated Mt. Elliott Park & Pavilion features a Great Lakes schooner-themed water feature with water cascades and “kid activated” water cannons, wind chimes and many other interactive features. The park is beautifully landscaped, complete with fishing piers, winding walkways, LED lighting, restrooms and a café. It is located at 120 Mt. Elliott in Detroit at the foot of Mt. Elliott and Wight Streets.

All improvements at Mt. Elliott Park have been designed to be universally accessible to those of all ages and physical challenges and the design features have been crafted to be responsive to the nature of the site and authentic to its heritage. The water features in the park were designed in collaboration with Water Odyssey, an international designer of fountains and water parks.

Amenities include a cafe, public restrooms, fishing and a pavillion.
