He means with the Riverwalk, will they tear it down, a valid question.

It was discussed on another thread, and as I recall, the ideal plan was... to... relocate it to the Hart Plaza area?

Relocate the Chene Park to Hart Plaza? Is that what the answer is?

I must be missing something but I don't want to!

We've talked about the future of the Chene Park amphitheater here numerous times. I don't recall anyone ever posting the definitive info on what will happen to it.

In some renderings of the riverwalk, the amphitheater is there. In other articles and renderings about Tricentennial State Park, the amphitheater is gone, and "Chene Park" absorbed into the state park.

I've been to concerts at Chene Park, and the location is OUTSTANDING. I like it much better than Hart Plaza, because it's not full of concrete.

It has been generally known that the vision for the riverfront includes that it (Chene) will be "moved" to Hart Plaza, and by moved I simply mean Chene will be phased out, Hart Plaza will become increasinly "greened out" and will replace Chene.

More importantly, some kind of amphitheater would have to be built in Hart Plaza.

I wonder if it can be taken down and reconstructed to save money?

If you think about it, a Hart Plaza location will be better for the city. It will liven up downtown during times that it often isn't. It is transit accessible. And it will allow for a more livable neighborhood where now a loud music venue and a huge parking lot dominate.

I thought the interview with KK awhile back said that the removal of asbestos from the Ford Theater was in progress and that it would be torn down and a New Chene would be built is its place. Thought I read that sometime ago.

Since Campus Martius opened, Hart Plaza no longer seems like Detroit's Hot spot for the summer. I think the Plaza taking over as Chene Park would be a plus for the city and the CBD

You mean Ford Auditorium. I remember reading that too, but I don't think any work has taken place

Are the Fords still raising hell over demolition? Young tried it, I believe it was William Clay who publicly threatened that the city could forget about any money from the family. If they are I wonder if offering to name the amphitheater after them would make them more agreeable to demolition ?

The one thing I've never really liked about Hart Plaza was its lack of green space, especially for concerts. Chene Park always looked spectacular with the river behind the stage and I thought it was great to see shows there. We have a great backdrop in the River- why not use it!?

I heard that one too and it's no wonder this city is broke. 90% of the new Chene Park is already sitting there, unseen, right under your noses (river view included) and could happen at a fraction of the cost...

start thinking beyond your overpaid ego ass

".........I believe it was William Clay who publicly threatened that the city could forget about any money from the family."

Did he ever threaten to move his football team out of Detroit? That would have been a deal maker.
