It's a park. What more can someone say? It's a nice park with lots of green space as well as access to the water. The park was clean and looks like the landscape is maintained. It's a short walk from downtown so you can take advantage of the water, and green space yet still take advantage of Front Street.

This was a lovely public beach in downtown Traverse City. There was a metered parking lot right at the beach and you could rent kayaks, etc right there. The only downside was that the water was FREEZING and I mean ice like when we went in late August. We didn't stay as long as we could have because the water... More

We hit Clinch Park mid week on our stay to Traverse City. We enjoyed the spot so much we shuffled things around so we could come back again at the end of the week! The playground was nice, grounds were well maintained. Gorgeous views, of course. The sandy beach was beautiful, had lifeguards, and was not too crowded. There were... More

didn't swim here but played on the beach and walked the pier. The beach was very clean and sand was full of rocks to gather.

My cousin had his wedding there. It was beautiful. I never knew places like that existed in Michigan.

The splash pad at Clinch Park was what drew us here. I had a family get-together in Traverse City, and my grandchildren absolutely loved the splash pad! Having that nice snack bar nearby was also a welcome addition. The swimming beach area of the park was clean and accommodating for families. The water of the bay was very cold this... More

This is a great park. The town has made awesome use of space right next to Lake Michigan. They have very nice restrooms. It is a great park to take young children to enjoy the water sprinkler park.

I also had lunch there. The veggie burger was good but I wished there was some other bun that the pretzel bun - it's too big!! The coleslaw was yummy.
