Nice beach in town, but this is Northern Michigan...

This is a nice beach if you are in town and like to people watch, but since you are surrounded by water here in Traverse City there are a lot of other beautiful beaches to enjoy... read more

This is a nice beach if you are in town and like to people watch, but since you are surrounded by water here in Traverse City there are a lot of other beautiful beaches to enjoy, but I'll keep those secret!

So much fun! Smaller beach just yards from downtown Traverse City. Swim, rent kayaks, watch the boats you can do it all. Not too crowded, all ages but lots of families for sure. There's also a great splash pad area which is great for rinsing off all that sand on your way out!

Love this park!! It has a great beach and swimming area, plus a splash park. I took my nieces and nephews paddle-boarding on our recent trip. They were able to accommodate 9 people without reservations, were very safety conscious, and were also very professional. If you are not used to the Great Lakes (even though this is actually Grand Traverse... More

The children will love the splash pad, and there is always lots of things to do. I love how convenient it is. We especially love walking out on the pier in the evening to watch the sunset.

Walking distance to down town. Great beach to swim, walk the marina, eat, and spend the whole day there. You don't have to leave. There is on site food, from breakfast to dinner. Very clean restrooms, a movie theater, kayak and paddle board rentals. A splash pad for the kids, are among the activities you can do. If you want... More

Very nice park. There is a splash park for the little kids. Rentals for kayaks and other things are there. Very clean. Much cheaper than going to the State park if you do not have a sticker. You just pay to park and they utilize a cool parking app if you do not have change.

Kids loved this place. Beach was so clean and the water park next to it was great for my 7 and 8 year old. Beautiful view of the bay and ships.

Whether you have toddlers who love to splash at the playground/waterpark, or want to enjoy the beach and rent a kayak, there is plenty to do here. You are also within walking distance to downtown Front Street with lots of shops and restaurants. Restroom pavilion was clean and great for cleanup from the beach.

Had our 4 year old Grandchild with us and parents. Fun water park, and a extra nice beach. The water in the bay was warm and crystal clear. Beach was clean and Bathrooms were good. They do have changing stations
