Good view
Aug 2020
We stopped here to to look at Thunder Bay. This park has a nice sized parking lot. Tennis courts, benches & an outdoor amphitheater. A walking path is by the water & I assume it runs along Thunder Bay.
I think at one time it must have had a beach, but with water levels being so high, now has a rock break wall.
Basically, it's a nice place to sit & chill.

Great place to watch the sunrise

Walking the breakwater for the marine to get a good view of the Alpena light while watching the sunrise of Lake Huron is the perfect way to start your day. Take a fresh bagel from Neumann’s along to enjoy a great breakfast too.

Love this park! It's a small park with a beach! A nice walk from our hotel and a beautiful place to take a rest!

Tiny & peaceful beach park

What can I say!! There are many great beaches in Alpena. This is probably the smallest. It's nestled between private properties. There's really no place to park. It's best reached on foot.

Where legends were made....

I could tell you about the bi-path that run along Lake Huron that is covered by trees and in the fall looks like it is a painting. I could tell you about the bandshell that features movies and music or the kids park nearby. I could tell you about the tennis courts, but the real reason you should go down to Bayview is for the basketball courts that hosted hours of basketball and competition.

Down by Thunder Bay

I've used Bay View Park since I was a kid. Back then it was a small aprk where you could go swim, change in the small 2 hole bathroom (1 boys 1 girls) & there was a raft in the lake. The city expanded it & someone classied it up by changing the name to Baie View or was it Vieau? I jest. They removed the raft & expanded further toward the tennis courts that the High school kids used to use back in the fifties. The water became more polluted with sludgy stuff like wood chips really ground up that would stick to you as you tried to wade through it to get to clean water. Now they have lined the shoreline with massive hunks of limestone from the park all the way over to the Small Boat Harbor. A paved walk meanders from the southern corner of the park at the street & has holders for "Mutt Mitts" so folks can let their pets enjoy the park but not leave their calling cards. It is a nice park with benches, shady trees and sunny meadow. The path goes over to the bandshell where all summer long various artists entertain and folks participate in winning prizes & enjoying the summer. On the fourth of July, it provides a decent spot to sit and watch the fireworks display from the Waterworks next to Starlite beach. you cannot sit & watch it from there for safety reasons. Anyhow, Bay View gives the tourist another large view of Thunder Bay & Lake Huron.

Bayview park

Another of my favorite places for walking in Alpena. The bike path goes along the outside edge of the park with multiple benches and picnic tables. It is the home of the beautiful bandshell that hosts free summer concerts and the Kiwanis kids park, a tennis court, and a basketball court. The bike path goes on to the breakwall, which gives a beautiful view of Lake Huron. It is the perfect spot for a great walk!

What a glorious view
Jun 2013 • Family
Like to sit by the edge out your feet in beautiful Lake Huron. Watch the sail boats go by. Take a walk around the park and take in a breath-taking view of the Islands off the shore line. Nothing like a Saturday with free music at the Alpena Band-Shell. Music fills the air!
