The Blue Water River Walk is a paved, shoreline path along the St. Clair River. It is a unique location to watch freighter traffic, view the St. Clair River and enjoy the shoreline which has been restored to a more natural state.

The paved pedestrian path rolls along 4,300 feet of shoreline and connects to the Bridge to Bay Trail. An elevated structure that was once used as an ferry dock provides a fun and different perspective on the river and land.

The Blue Water River Walk has been a shoreline restoration project, not only for the land, but for wildlife as well, inviting natural plants and aquatic life back to the area. Watch a video here.
