Couldn't go swimming because of E Coli threat (watch the signs on the beach) but lots of folks did... We played it safe and stayed in the playground, well loved by lots of kids. The sliding thing seemed to cause a lot of falls, but all the bigger kids wanted to play on it. Playground covered baby to big boys... More

Great little beach, park and marina all close by to each other. Had clean bathrooms and changing stations nearby, and it was not too crowded or hard to park close by when we stopped by. Enjoyed free evening music events, good restaurants, shops within walking distance.

6 adults were able to sit in the shade while 5 kids played in the sand and the 1 yr old walked around the park saying Hi to everyone and photobombing. Wonderful place to spend a relaxing few hours. Took the kids to the beach area and some even jumped off the pier into the crystal clear water. Other ones... More

We love to go to the park to watch the Sunsets when we vacation in Sister Bay every summer. They did a great job on the park - plenty of benches. Marina is not even a block away and it is beautiful.

Not very big, but very friendly. Close parking. Bathrooms. Playground. The beach is stony, not really comfortable for bare feet. You can rent chairs across the street. Marina next door has interesting boats. Comfortable. There are goats across the street on the roof of the cafe.

several pieces of playground equipment for smaller children to climb, slide, and swing. Next to public beach. Not place for the small children to have lots of fun and be outside and run around.

Recently renovated. Nice pavilion for free concerts / free movies in the park on certain nights. Beach is right in front of park. Park did have some shade trees. Wild Tomato restaurant is just in front of the park ( the back of the restaurant which is the outdoor seating area). Sister Bay Boat Rentals was a short walk away.... More
