Time Out says

The “point of origin” of Detroit’s coordinate system (seven miles north of here is Seven Mile Rd, eight miles north is Eight Mile Rd, and so on), Campus Martius Park (800 Woodward Ave, 313-962-0101) remains one of the city’s most important focal points. It’s also one of the best places to hang out for a chilled afternoon: in the summer for iced tea outside the Parisian-style Fountain Bistro (313-237-7778), or in the winter for a spin round the seasonal ice rink and a hot cup of cocoa. Look out for free movie screenings and concerts in the evenings, as well as the park’s resident fleet of food trucks—particularly Buffy’s Mexi-Casian Grill (313-399-8560), where the chicken chimichanga is a major favorite.
