Very pretty park that is right on the shoreline of Michigan Lake. You get a nice panoramic view of the city skyline and it offers recreation for the young and old.

It's more like 3 parks and beach areas one after the other. Lot's of places to explore and walk the trails. Very scenic. My kids liked it a lot. We did not get in the water - some of it was black.
