Don’t tell the people working on connecting trails and greenways along the rivers of Southeast Michigan that these are dire economic times in the state. They’re too busy creating economic development opportunities in cities and villages as they improve recreational access to rivers with connector trails – both greenways and blueways. HRWC participated in the reunion of the Downriver Linked Greenways on Tuesday in Flat Rock to celebrate this work and learn from others as the Huron River Water Trail is developed.

Congratulations to everyone involved with the Downriver Linked Greenways Initiative for the good work of the past decade, and for the new piece of the trail puzzle that will be added in Flat Rock to connect Oakwoods Metropark to Huroc Park. Read the Detroit News article for more information.
