They serve food and drinks here during the summer; there are also pop machines. There are two playgrounds. One is a little less crowded. Both playgrounds are great. The bigger one is a great place for kids to interact with each other and parents to sit down and enjoy themselves with other parents. It is always a positive environment, even... More

Beautiful beach and access to the pier. Very crowded in the summer with lots of tourists. More peaceful in the Spring and Fall when not so busy. We always walk out on pier when in St. Joseph.

It was too cold to go in the water however we did put our toes in the sand and it was clean and soft. You can tell that they care about the beach area. Very well maintained.

There are never the same views of the Lake. Depending on the time of year you visit, the scenery always is changing.

Undoubtedly Lake Michigan offers some beautiful white sand beaches and if you want 'free' access or play areas for children, by all means, come early and secure a parking space and enjoy. The Carousel, Curious Kid's Museum & Discovery Zone and the Whirlpool Fountain's very short hours offer a lot of activities in close proximity and draw the small children... More

I've visited this park many times. It is also clean, well lit, the whirlpool compass fountain and little play areas are great for the kids.

Love walking at the beach and on the pier. The city has done a great job of adding walking paths along the beach and any out of town visitor should make the stop here!

Great place to spend the day. Lifeguards, snack bar (a bit pricey, but they always are. . .), and a fair amount parking available (this could be better). The grounds include a wonderful fountain for the kids to run and play through, a pavilion that has a beautiful and old-time carousel for the young and young-at-heart and games. A separate... More
