I was first introduced to LAKE PARK this past year during a photo shoot for a friend that was preparing to leave for Japan!

We walked and talked and sat on a bench and talked, we watched people passing by with their dogs, on bikes, on skates and just strolling on a nice sunny warm day. We had a beautiful view of Lake Michigan, and of the little... More

Great views and gardens. Nice paved walking and biking trails. There were ample places to park and get out and walk. Great view of Lake Michigan. A walk down one of the trails takes you past a very pretty light house.

Lake Park offers lawn bowling, has a bike path, many places to sit and look out at Lake Michigan. It is a large park and has many things to offer. It's well kept and a very relaxing place to be. Also a perfect location to watch fireworks!

Many wonderful memories of times of carefree days on the Beaches spent lolling in the Sun and watching the crowds walk up and down the Lake Front!

Fantastic ~ beach-side fly-bys of the Blue Angels! Parking at the marina was well worth the $20 and the concessions were reasonable too.
