This is a city park that must be enjoyed. You can walk the the break wall when the lake is calm. Hiking the in land trails is good excerise. Jumping off Black rocks is a thrill. At sunset point hang your hammock and enjoy.

We visit here every year that we come to the UP. The park never ceases to amaze us. And this year we got to watch an ore boat come in to dock.

Driving around this park with its many super views is great fun. There are many stopping places for walking or viewing Lake Superior. I enjoyed visiting after an absence of many years.

Presque Isle Park is beautiful and a breathtaking place for a picnic on a warm summer day. There are many places, close by, to pick up a picnic lunch. Enjoy a ride or walk around Presque Isle.

Beautiful park. Hiking trails, Lake Superior cliffs and beaches. 😊 We spent 1/2 a day exploring, watching the ships, hiking and walking the beaches. Highly recommended.

First, I do recommend you check the page on Marquette's website for this park so you know the times of day in which the park is designated only for walking, so you aren't surprised. It's really a nice park, with a light station on the first turnoff, and various spots for turning off to take pictures. Our favorite was a... More

Beautiful views, great vista's to watch the sunset. No fee to enter. A gem. Only a few minutes from downtown. Many seem to bring a hammock and set it up to watch the sunset, great idea!
