When I was younger my family used to go here. I loved the playground and to this day I have never seen a better playground than the one they have here.

French Park is located on the north Shore of Medicine Lake in the center of Plymouth. This is an awesome park for people of all ages. My family goes here frequently to walk and bike on the excellent paths.

There is a giant set of climbing ropes in the children’s play area that kind of looks like a pirate ship. This is really popular with the kids. There is a boat house near the swimming beach that rents paddle boats, canoes and kayaks. The swimming beach is nice and large is usually not very crowded (and it has no lifeguard). Near the beach is a large grassy area with lots of picnic tables and grills (get there early on the holidays if you want a table). It is a long walk from the parking lots to the picnic area so a tram runs back and forth about every 20 minutes.

There is a boat launch that can store about 50 trailers at a time. If there are more than 50 boats then you have to wait in a boat line for someone to leave. The speed limit is only 20 mph and the police really enforce this (so do not speed in the park).

Overall I think this is a great Park to hang out and explore (and there is no cost to enter).

Great lake, trails and playground. Summer time during the day the playground can get a bit crowed.
