“What a wonderful park right in the heart of Ludington....”
Reviewed August 9, 2011

Though we have visited Ludington inumerable times over the years, we have never been in Waterfront Park. Located on Pere Marquette Lake, near the marina, it is a vast expanse of beautiful, thick green lawn, clean and neat sidewalks, some smaller shade trees, nice landscaping, a gazebo (too bad you can't sit in it-no benches), and some flowers here and there with great views of the lake, marina and boating traffic.

There is an awesome playground for kids, parking (there should be more parking..), bathrooms, picnic tables, benches and even some night lighting.

But it is also part of a sculpture park, with nine bronzed sculptures that represent life that is Ludington-past, present. Baseball, farming, lumbering, fishing, etc and they are really spectacular. We were so surprised and pleased to see these and really enjoyed our time walking around the 5 acre park taking in all the sculptures and views.

We had a picnic under a couple of mugo pines, that provided excellent shade. There are grills located nearby. It was a very enjoyable afternoon for us and we will always make it a point to visit this park when in Ludington. It is very clean and pretty quiet!
