The city has really transformed the water front. For those of us who started making babies ten years ago, you'll always feel nostalgic for the crappy zoo that was here before... that's where we took our sweet little kids when they were little wee ones... but enough with one winged eagles and half dead bears... they transformed it to a...

I have never visited the Clinch Park until this last weekend and wow was I impressed. The City founders are doing a good job with their shoreline making it beautiful and assessable to the community. The walk along the park is just lovely with a beautiful shelter, bath house and toilets, along with a small concession stand. The beach area... More

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
