A popular sand beach in the heart of downtown Detroit is getting a little sprucing up.

The Downtown Detroit Partnership says a $125,000 grant from the Southwest Airlines Foundation will be used to improve the beach at Campus Martius Park.

Beach furniture, toys and games, lighting and landscaping will be enhanced. Beer and wine tastings will be among new events at the beach, which opened in 2014.

Additional funding will be used to support existing events like the Friday Beach Party which features local bands performing reggae and Caribbean-style music.

The Downtown Detroit Partnership works with the city, businesses and foundations to create a vibrant urban core.
