DETROIT (WXYZ) — Kids can color their way through Detroit's most popular parks with a new free online coloring book.

The book is the result of a partnership between Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, the Belle Isle Conservancy, the Downtown Detroit Partnership, Eastern Market and the City of Detroit.

Each Tuesday from April 14 through May 26, two new images will be released and available to download, print and color at

Kids are encouraged to share their pages by posting it on social media using #ColoringDetroitParks.

Many public spaces throughout Detroit will be featured, including the Belle Isle Aquarium, Shed 3 at Eastern Market, Campus Martius Park and more.

“Detroit has amazing parks,” said Mark Wallace, president & CEO of the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy. “These parks bring us together to exercise, find peace by interacting with nature, and gather as a community. While our children are staying home to stay safe, this coloring book will allow them to express their creativity and to celebrate what these spaces mean to them.”
