So interesting... it's a whole neighborhood art installation by a single artist. It's a statement about the blight of Detroit and art at the same time. Enjoy... don't be nervous! It's a world famous site.

Disc Golf
“Wander the paths, kayak through the gorgeous canals, set up a BBQ on the beach, get a game of baseball or soccer going...this is a great summer spot. What I love most about Belle Isle is the diversity of the people who come to enjoy it. It's truly a great reminder that we're all the same, that we all want to enjoy life, that we're all here together :)”

Art Museum
“So it's not the MET, or the Louvre, but it's worth it. It has murals by Diego Rivera,Van Gogh, and some other masterpieces that give an amazing context to past and future artistic experiences.”
