Lake Park has a small golf pitch and putt course, miles of trails with a few ravines and access to the Lake Michigan beaches. Great for a casual walk, exercise or sitting and people watching.

Great park to walk and enjoy the beautiful views of Lake Michigan. They do need to fix the gorgeous bridge over the road however. It's been blocked off for years.

Lake Park has one of the BEST views there is. I have never seen so many people taking Wedding pictures in my life. If you want a FANTASTIC location for pictures this is it.

The Lake Park is a pretty little park near the beach. There are a lot of picnic lots and sporting oppurtunities.

Neat drive up to the north side along the lake to see this park. Walking trails and overlooks the lake. Also the lighthouse fun to see/tour when open.

Our beautiful lake is so special. There are very few fresh water lakes in the world and this one is taken care of for the enjoyment of all the citizens. Along the Lake Park you will find a world class Art Museum. Don't miss it.

Yes. It is really steep if you start at the top and go down toward the lake though.

It should be open to the public after a recent restoration. I think the public hours are on Saturdays and Sundays, from 1-4 p.m. which will get you inside to see the exhibits and climb the tower (for a fee). (There may be a... More
