Detroit United Lacrosse is a citywide youth organization dedicated to developing student athletes of character and integrity who will serve as positive members of the community. The Detroit United Lacrosse Association works directly with youth from Detroit & surrounding neighborhoods to provide high-level lacrosse training, wellness education, and educational opportunities. Detroit United Lacrosse uses the Lacrosse Athlete Development Model and principles of the Positive Coaching Alliance.

About the Location
GABRIEL RICHARD PARK
Located at the eastern-most point of the RiverWalk, this riverfront gem is a beautiful and serene oasis that features lush landscaping, a whimsical fountain, butterfly gardens, a contemplative labyrinth and fishing outlooks.
New enhancements to Gabriel Richard Park unveiled in 2015 include an environmentally-friendly parking lot and pathways to better link the park with Jefferson Avenue, lighting the labyrinth and new restroom facilities. Additionally, a new birding station features four wildlife-spotting scopes (two of which are universally-accessible) and an interpretive panel identifying various birds that can be found along the riverfront.
