  • I went there recently for the first time this summer. I was impressed with how clean the fountain is. I know the last several years, the water would usually be gross and grimy, but this year it was so clean I even felt comfortable cooling my feet off. The park is very nice and open. There are lots of trees for shade when it's sweltering, and many built-in seating areas. The last thing I'll make note of is that I appreciate whoever designed the park. It is extremely handicap accessible, from the River Walk to the entrance from the street. And the sidewalks seem to all be in good repair, so a wheelchair or walker can roll around easily. This is fabulous!
  • Went for the beer festival and had a blast in the slightly hot weather. A good selection of craft beers, wine, ciders, and some meads from Michigan. Didn't really get any food there, as the focus was on the beverages. Lastly, everyone there was friendly and the overall mood was relaxed.
  • Our beautiful park is a great centerpiece to our downtown! Our Friendship Ring is unmistakable; yeah, it looks like a toilet seat 🤷‍♀️, but it's really a great focal point. The Friendship Shell is a great stage for live music, & the new pavilion is a perfect space for smaller events. There is always something going on - stop on down!
  • This is a park in downtown Bay City. Stunning river walk. Lots of events. Ships old and new. River races and Hugh fireworks on 4th July.
  • On the right nights the sunset is definitely worth the wait. Guaranteed to leave in a better mood after appreciating the sounds of the Saginaw river gently hugging the docks. Good places to go and reflect. Not very private but it's a public park so that's kind of a thing we a share and appreciate. Pack a snack if your like they have picnic tables with sun/ rain umbrellas. Its wise to bring a small hand towel to dry the benches off if it recently rained. Best enjoyed with company, I find it a good place to go and relax, reflect and enjoy you're favorite tunes. Please enjoy it, its our tax dollars at work for a good cause.
