Friends of the Rouge is currently working with the ten communities and Wayne County to develop a water trail along the Lower Rouge from Canton to the Detroit River. Meetings are held every other month on the third Thursday. Email email@example.com if interested.

A signage package has also been developed.
The water is generally safe for boating if there has been no heavy rain or snowmelt; swimming is not recommended.
The Lower Rouge River Water Trail is a consortium of interested groups and communities and is a project of the Lower Rouge River Water Trail Leadership Committee. Contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are now able to have the public into our space at PARC, but we do not have regular business hours. It is best for anyone who wants to come in to call ahead and schedule a time (734-927-4900).
We hope to have regular office hours by early Fall!
