Great place to dip feet in the soul soothing waters of Mama Mich any time of year! Of course I had it to myself as it was March. Very nice just standing and enjoying the surf.

After a day of shopping around town, I wanted a place to sit, reflect and relax and this spot footed the bill. The lake views are spectacular while sitting on the nearby picnic tables. This is a great spot for lunch. I will be back.

If you are tired of the hustle and bustle of shopping, this is a nice place to catch your breath and maybe take a few beautiful photos of the boaters or other water activities or the awesome nature around the water. Nice spot to relax.

Beach, marina, kayak rental, bike path connecting to another beach 1/2 away (and 18 miles further to Suttons Bay), park, and movie theater. And you don't have to go to a movie to be able to buy the popcorn and soft drinks.

If you are not staying at a lakefront hotel this is a nice place to visit and enjoy on day of water sports.

92 degrees and the splash pad wasn't operating. Disappointed. Not that there was anywhere to park anyways. Went down the street a couple miles and hit West End Beach. Parking spot and it was FREE!

My family misses the little zoo that used to be located here but the park is nice. Visitors can rent bikes, paddle boards and kayaks to use. There is a concession stand with snacks.

Waterfront area by the West Arm Grand Traverse Bay is laid out nicely for walkers , runners and boaters. The pathways are paved and run along the shore with rails for safety. You are right next to the water. It's laid out with well manicured...More
