The new Tri-Centennial Park. I was recently here to have a meeting with some business partners, and I realised I hadnt been out to look at the lighthouse and other new stuff up close. This park is actually the beginning of a river system of parks being joined into a single contiguious one. It was formerly St.Aubins Marina and St Aubin Park.

Here is the park today…

This is before the renovation.

LAND OF BOATS” A lost artwork by Vito Acconci, placed here originally in 1991. At its unveiling, Acconci proclaimed “Here we have provided something people are in the middle of, as opposed to art with a distance”.

  • Sure Do’B – local chapter of what ? I am sure I have quite a load of things to use for such a project. Several hours of video going several years back as well.

  • Great shots! can these be used for a documentary about Detroit that our local chapter is doing?
