“Great place to enjoy”
Review of Clinch Park

I grew up in Traverse City. Clinch Park has always been a place you could enjoy a day at the beach, or to catch the fireworks during the 4th of July Celebrations. It is also a great place to park and enjoy a meal watching West Bay.

Very nice beach, place to sit and relax, and look at all the beautiful boats in the marina. A nice jetty that you can walk out on into the bay and gives you an incredible view looking back toward downtown.

We stumbled onto this beach during a recent trip to Traverse City. Honestly, you would think that the city would make getting to (walking to) the beach from the downtown area a little simpler. Anyway, lovely little city beach. Just lovely. The view was beautiful and so was the weather and even though we weren't prepared for the beach the grownups had a relaxing sit on the sand while the kids played on the beach. There are nice, updated public bathrooms at the beach, a little vending window to get a hot dog or ice cream cone. There was even a springler pad that appealed to grown ups and children alike. Very, very nice public beach.

This public park has everything a family, any family at any age would want. For the young, there is sand and water and an added bonus of a new splash pad and little person adventure equipment, for the adventurous there is the river rentals (fee) with paddle boards, kayaks and other "people powered" stuff. For the more leisure crowd, there is plenty of people and dog watching with a beautiful view of beach and boats. For our family of 6 with kids from 8-18 and 2 dogs that travel with us, it is not summer with out a trip to Traverse City and Clinch Park.

How fortunate the residents of Traverse CIty are to have Clinch Park. The powdery sand beach is a great place to relax and look at lovely Grand Traverse Bay. There's a concession on the premises, lifeguards on duty, Adirondack style chairs for sitting, boat rentals and restrooms. It's a wonderful place to melt away daily stresses. The swimming is excellent at Clinch Park. If I lived in Traverse City during the summer months I'd make it to Clinch Park at least four days a week. It's an absolutely beautiful place. Go there if you can!
