  • I love this park. It was pretty clean and next to Michigan lake which is awesome✔ you can eat some food you can swim you can walk around you can get relax etc for everybody. Parking kinda problem because they are asking wilmette sticker on the car which is I don't have so I parked close to second street it was fine over there ✅ I have seen restroom and little complex near the beach.

  • Comfortable family oriented environment but no free parking unless you have a city sticker.
  • Beautiful scenery. Looks just like the ocean. Good spot for photos.
