Gorgeous Open Space, nice modern marina. Splash pad for the kids, but watch the hours because the Splash Pad closes strangely early. And there's beautiful sandy beaches on both sides of the park as well. A really nice spot.

Clinch Park beach is a very good family beach. There is nice, rather new, bathrooms. Also changing rooms, drinking fountain, foot wash. There is a splash pad water park for the younger kids. The city runs a cafe. You can rent kayaks, paddle boards, bikes, etc. The beach has a life guard during the day. One of our favorite features... More

This park is beautiful! I grew up in Traverse City and moved away 38 years ago. Every time I visit and see this park/view, it's like a piece of Heaven! The beach is beautiful, the water is so blue, the boats are a beautiful sight - the list goes on. The only downfall is that it is very hard to... More

We love to see movies at the Bijou in Clinch Park, plus take kids to the water fountain to play, or take a walk and enjoy the beautiful views from the marina. This weekend i went and visited a tall ship that was visiting from St. Augustine. What a beautiful way to spend Sunday Morning.

Nothing huge here. Hoards of people, a playground with water. Nice restroom facility close by. A 5-6 minute walk to the downtown strip of stores. The bay is beautiful. The beach there isn't long but its a nice tan sandy beach with blue/green ocean colored water and lots of boats to look at. Parking was pretty bad but other than... More

So the beach wasn't as "white sands" as we expected. And the day we went it was 93 degrees out so the sand was scorching hot and the water was ice cold. But the water starts to feel good compared to the burning sand. And the kids had fun building a sand castle We only spent about an hour and... More

Loved just walking in the park, did a lot of walking in the park. Enjoyed the Wednesday Farmer's market in the park and bought a lot of sweet cherries, jelly, granola, and cherry pie!

This is a great place to just sit back, relax and watch the ships sail across the bay. It has a prime location in the center of everything, so it's easy to get to.

Clinch Park is waterfront to Traverse City and Front Street. It includes a beach in west bay where you can see your toes in the sand through the water. Very clean beach and water. We were in Traverse City for the National Cherry Festival, and although the beach and park were crowded for the weekend, during the week it was... More

First time visitors to this beach and it's fantastic. The grounds are clean, facilities are very nicely kept and there's lots to do in one area. We will come back!
