On 4/5/2021 first time back on Belle Isle in over a year. WHAT A DUMP! When the state took it over a few years back it was cleaned up and looked really good. What happened? (covered in litter, falling down buildings, closed roads, piles of junk) Who is in charge here? Any performance standards bieng held accountable for?

Lifelong Detroiter with many visits to Belle Isle through the years. Many family memories. Still make it to the island numerous times each year. During these COVID times, it has been a terrific place to walk and bike. Most of the buildings are closed, but you can walk through the Conservatory gardens (limited hours), visit the Dossin Great Lakes Museum, walk and bike all the way around the island, check out the architecture of the buildings (thank you, Albert Kahn and others) and other structures, walk out to the Lighthouse and the adjacent island, sit and relax and enjoy the view of downtown Detroit and the Detroit River, go fishing, wander about and take photos of the natural beauty, the historical monuments, the architecture, or your family, and more. Certainly the island can always be better maintained, but the improvement since it became a Michigan State Park is visible. Looking forward to the Conservatory, Aquarium, and Nature Center to being open again. A great place for your family gathering or for showing out-of-town visitors too!!

Took our bikes and a picnic lunch to Belle Isle on a beautiful fall day. The views of Detroit and Windsor, ON can't be beat. The biking was fantastic-- both around the perimeter of the island and across the interior. I think we rode about 12 miles with interesting stuff to look at the whole time. There are bathrooms scattered around the park, but some of them were closed for the season already. We got to see a lake freighter pass by.

This park has so much potential unfortunately, only the two main attractions, the aquarium and conservatory has been maintained. There's definitely plenty of space for picnic, swimming. biking, walking, etc but it just lacks the attractions you see at other great city parks in Chicago, NYC, Boston, etc.
