Clinch Park is a nice place to hang out by the bay, on the beach, or under a tree. There's also a nice waterpark for kids. There are also nice bathrooms, kayak and paddle board rentals, and a place for snacks or ice cream. It's just one of many beautiful places in Traverse City.

This is a nice park in Traverse City. It is great for families. There is a beach, and they have a place to order food. There are picnic tables, rest rooms, and a splash park. They also rent kayaks. It is a nice place to take a casual stroll. If parking is full, then there is parking across the street... More

Whether you're looking for a beach day or a simple walk after dinner this park is great for either. You can park there directly or easily access it from the downtown area via a tunnel walkway. The restaurant is a nice touch along with the splash park. Walking around the marina is nice for boat lovers. Overall a great park... More

Everything looks very new and impressive. My kids were so excited to try the splash park. It closed literally seconds before we got there. Everything shuts down at 6pm. We still enjoyed the beach.

Was on a family camping trip and was taking a day to tour around Traverse City and do some parasailing. Was very hot and looking for a beach to hit and just happen to be driving by Clinch Park and stopped in. Nice changing room and pretty long beach area. Hitting that water was just what we needed. Was very... More

Has a small zoo and great location down on the waterfront. A pier and tall ships is located adjacent to Clinch Park. Nice place to just walk and relax.

Always come to this back to this beach. Great place and has the extras like a snack bar, clean bathrooms and changing room, and kayak rentals. Parking could be better and some of extras are a little pricey.

Public access beach in Traverse City. Summer fun within city limits. Many pay parking options nearby and some free parking options a few blocks away.

Beautiful views of the water and great swimming beach. It's super sandy and you can rent kayaks, get food and they have bathrooms.
