DETROIT (AP) - Snow plows, a crane, a cement mixer and emergency service vehicles will be among more than 25 trucks available for children to explore along the Detroit riverfront.

Visitors to West Riverfront Park also will be able to speak with the drivers and operators of the vehicles from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at the free Touch-A-Truck event.

The event is hosted by the nonprofit Detroit RiverFront Conservancy.

RiverFront Conservancy president and chief executive Mark Wallace says the organization looks forward to welcoming people to the 20-acre park that opened last summer.

The park is part of the conservancy’s efforts to develop more than five miles of riverfront from the Ambassador Bridge east to Gabriel Richard Park near Belle Isle. The east riverfront mostly is complete.
