Wyandotte Interactive Tour / BASF Waterfront Park

Wyandotte, Michigan
1854 Wyandotte Village   |   Ford City   |   Glenwood & Mt. Carmel   |   South Wyandotte

O. BASF Waterfront Park, reclaimed factory land
Walkway running along river. Several decks suspended over river to rest and relax. Possible to see all the way to downtown Detroit 12 miles to the north, with the Renaissance Center and other skyscrapers standing on the horizon.

Without the first commercial application of the Bessemer steel manufacturing process in Wyandotte that created steel inexpensively, construction of these skyscrapers would not have been possible.

During the Sesquicentennial celebration in June 2004, a new sculpture celebrating Wyandotte’s ethnic heritage, will be dedicated in BASF park.
