Really enjoyed the park, great venue for Beerfest! Plenty of room to spread out and good view of the closed Ore Dock.

Nice park along the lake front. Great playground for kids. Restaurants nearby for adults. Parking can get tight on certain weekends.

Nice respite close to downtown
Jul 2018 • Couples
We decided to stop at the park to check out the harbor & take a brief walk. Good amount of green space to enjoy, easy parking, nice playground area for kids, ice cream shop, indoor restrooms, and walking path by the lake. We marveled at the ore docks & struck up a conversation with a friendly local. Worth a visit.

Great little park
Sep 2017 • Family
Great little water front park in Marquette, Great play ground with lots grass and parking, if no activities are going on.Right beside an active dock and the lower harbor marina is on the other side of the parking lot. Lots of very popular activeties happen here from the sea food fest, car shows to fireworks. Ice cream shop open in the summer..There is a great bike path that goes right by the park.. Relating to pictures in other reviews, there is no beach here. This was a old industrial site that was turned into a city park. Beaches are just north west of the park or on the east side Marquette..

Excellent lakefront Park
Jul 2017 • Family
Excellent lakefront park near our city marina lots of green space for whatever you want and trails around park that connect to city. Playground for family with kids, no beach nearby if its hot but some people jump off the wall near the lake. During summer city has many festivals going on in park depending on occasion or holiday.

Awesome playground
Jul 2017 • Family
We did not check out the whole park, just the playground. My 8 year old daughter loved it. She spied it earlier in the day when we were driving around, and so, we promised to go there later that day. Good chance for her to run off some energy from our long road trip in the UP.

Decent park/beach
Jul 2017 • Family
A nice spot on a warm day to take a dip in Lake Superior. Beach was ok, but not as clean as other beaches on the lake. Some vintage playground equipment for the kids give the park a old fashioned feel. Lifeguards on duty make it feel safe. Downside, the large coal fired power plant located directly next to it is ugly and blocks views of downtown Marquette.

Wonderful family park
Aug 2016 • Friends
I love going down to this park! It's wonderful for the family or to just walk around. The water is calming and you can take a walk on the break wall. Also, a nice treat is the ice cream store for some refreshing ice cream! Always nice to just stroll around this park and be by the water.
