William G. Milliken State Park and Harbor
William G. Milliken State Park and Harbor is located in the heart of Detroit, just east of downtown, along a portion of the city’s Detroit Riverwalk, which provides easy access for fishing, biking, walking and rollerblading.
The park is divided into three areas, including the harbor, the picnic shelter area and the popular berm area. Thanks to recent renovations, the berm now boasts an accessible walkway, handrails and new trees, shrubs and grass. The berm area is especially popular for picnics and wildlife viewing.
At the top of the berm, visitors can view the river and our neighbors in Canada through two new spotting scopes, courtesy of the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge and Enchroma, that provide an enhanced color view for visitors who are color blind. The berm also boasts an accessible walkway and handrails.
The state harbor provides 52 slips, as well as showers, a laundry facility, grills and picnic tables. To rent a picnic shelter, visit www.midnrreservations.com or call 1-800-44-PARKS.
The park is conveniently located near the Outdoor Adventure Center, Belle Isle Park and many other major downtown Detroit attractions.
