Dequindre Cut

Living in Detroit

We live right near an entrance to the Dequindre Cut, “an urban recreational path.” The “Cut” was formerly a railroad line and is below street level. It provides a pedestrian-only path from the Riverfront all the way to Eastern Market, and will hopefully be expanded. J and the kids have been on the Cut countless times since we moved, but I only got to use it recently. J and BE were out for the day, so BC and I took a bike ride down to the Riverfront. BC loves bike riding and he was excited to coast down the “entrance ramp” and to play at the park when we got down to the Riverfront near the Renaissance Center. I’m looking forward to warmer weather when we can use the Cut more often – I especially want to take it to Eastern Market!
