Although it's only (maybe) 1/2 a mile long it does have some very nice views along it's 2 bike/hiking paths. {ALL wheelchair accessible!} It starts at the "Pier Marquette" lighthouse (replacement) and goes north to the Discovery World (kids') museum.

We walked along the shore front . Unfortunately it is overrun by geese the day we were there. Still a beautiful peaceful area to enjoy.
