This gigantic concrete expanse at the foot of Woodward Avenue stretches from Jefferson Avenue to the Detroit River. Designed in the 1960s as a civic space by Isamu Noguchi, it includes his unusual twisted spire and fountain. The plaza has a stage and amphitheater and is used for ethnic riverfront festivals on summer weekends, the Ford Detroit International Jazz Festival in September and ice skating in winter. Hart Plaza provides access to a riverfront walkway, a favorite spot for fishing and for an unusual view of Canada to the south.
I would definitely recommend going to Hart Plaza to anyone who visits Detroit. There are tons of free cultural festivals and musical performances. Hart Plaza also borders the Detroit River, so you can take in the beautiful riverfront. Children love the waterfall centrally located in Hart Plaza. At night, romantics enjoy the riverfront. Hart Plaza is also a great hang out spot for teens.
I like the fact that it's free. The only thing that I would change would be to add more attractions. But this is my city and where we hang every year for a few festivals and see friends that we haven't seen in a while.
What can you say about ethnic festivals? They are celebrations of heritage and you can join in, whether you are of that ethnic or not. The food is fantastic, the music is awesone and the atmosphere is definetly "festive"!
