Mayor Dave Bing has cut the ribbon and reopened the 108-year-old Belle Isle Aquarium in Detroit.
The aquarium is open to the public on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It closed in 2005 due to financial problems and had been available only for special events.
The Belle Isle Conservancy raised money to help the aquarium's rebirth and is working with volunteers to operate the attraction.
The aquarium features fish native to the Detroit area and the Great Lakes. It opened in 1904 and was designed by famous architect Albert Kahn. Bing was presented with a ceremonial key in the shape of a fish Friday.
The mayor says recreation is more than just sports.
