The Metropolitan Affairs Coalition (MAC) invites you to get outside and enjoy a day of kayaking, bicycling, and family fun on the blueway and greenway trails in Flat Rock, Gibraltar, and Rockwood, as well as Lake Erie Metropark and the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge on Saturday, August 4 for the first annual “Celebrating Community Down by the River”.
You can start the day in Flat Rock and pedal or paddle your way to food and fun in Rockwood and Gibraltar. Take a bicycle tour through Lake Erie Metropark where American Lotus will be in bloom (don’t miss Lake Erie Metropark’s & ice cream cart). You can bring your kayak or rent one from Riverside Kayak Connection for group paddles along the lower Huron River and the canals of Gibraltar, both part of the Detroit Heritage River Water Trail. There’s lots more including lessons, bicycle helmet giveaways, live entertainment, food and refreshments.
You can get information on the event and also downloadable brochures, trail maps and more at their web site above, and they also have a cool new Southeast Michigan (and Southwest Ontario) Nature Tourism Event Calendar featuring outdoor recreation activities from all over Southeast Michigan.
