The Big Picture View of the Allen Creek Greenway
We begin our tour of the Allen Creek Greenway with an aerial view view of the proposed sites. The greenway stretches from south of the Michigan Stadium (on your left) all the way to the Huron River to the north (on your right). Definite locations for the greenway are colored in green whereas possible locations are colored orange.
South Campus / East Stadium Blvd Area
The tour begins at the very southern tip of the greenway, just south of the Michigan Stadium near Briarwood Mall. Here, the Allen Creek passes through the beautiful University of Michigan golf course. Golfers here enjoy its silent presence. The creek serves an important function in this area.
East Stadium Blvd and State Street
As we proceed along the railroad tracks…
Liberty and Huron Streets
The intersection of Madison and Jefferson is currently an unsightly rail yard.
William And Liberty
Between William street and Liberty currently exists a parking lot which is underused and unsightly. As you can see below, the transformation to a public park would be both beautiful and highly functional for both tourists and locals alike.
