Nice boardwalk along the Grand River ending at Lake Michigan. Very end of Pier with lighthouse being restored. A few shops and fast food stands along walk.

This pier has been under construction for over a year now. Not sure the cat walk part of it will be very appealing when they finally get it done.

Not sure the legality but I've seen lots of dogs out there. I'd use a leash to be safe.
