DETROIT (AP) - Detroit’s Dequindre Cut Greenway for pedestrians and bicyclists aims to entertain its mobile visitors.

The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press report Friday the 1.5-mile greenway is getting a performance venue courtesy of a $1 million gift in memory of a philanthropic leader and supporter. The covered structure and performance area is expected to open in fall 2016.

The gift from the McGregor Fund goes to the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, which manages the greenway. The gift honors C. David Campbell, former fund president and conservancy board member who died last year.

McGregor Fund President Kate Levin Markel says in a statement the project exemplifies Campbell’s “fondness for Detroit and Detroiters, a broad taste in the arts” and “a healthy sense of fun.”

The project complements a half-mile extension in progress.
