Easy parking for $0.50/hr metered for 10 hrs. Food and ice cream along with kayak rental in middle. Great splash pad for kids. Somewhat shelled shade. Not too busy. Has lifeguards. The best park is that you can easily walk to front street

This waterfront park is an awesome asset to an already fun city. There are a number of water activities, its is clean and well-maintained, and lots of parking.

People come here in droves to watch the sunset, or to swim or kayak. Very nice place to hang out. They rent canoes and such right by the water and there's a place to get a cold drink or a snack.

This park now has a new water play pad for the kids (and adults!), a cafe, of course the huge beach, boat rental, and picturesque areas for photography. They've really expanded it since I was here before!

Get there early for a place to park...or park across the street and walk thru the tunnel. We were just there and it was PACKED. They remodeled the playground and it's now a water park for kids. There are also kyaks for rent and a consession stand. Oh and don't forget the beach. Definately fun for the whole family!

I grew up in Traverse City. Clinch Park has always been a place you could enjoy a day at the beach, or to catch the fireworks during the 4th of July Celebrations. It is also a great place to park and enjoy a meal watching West Bay.

Very nice beach, place to sit and relax, and look at all the beautiful boats in the marina. A nice jetty that you can walk out on into the bay and gives you an incredible view looking back toward downtown.

We stumbled onto this beach during a recent trip to Traverse City. Honestly, you would think that the city would make getting to (walking to) the beach from the downtown area a little simpler. Anyway, lovely little city beach. Just lovely. The view was beautiful and so was the weather and even though we weren't prepared for the beach the... More
