It was windy the day we were here-I grew up visiting the small zoo that was here. Playground, boat launch, public bathrooms, walking park with benches to enjoy a picnic day.

So how perfect that on 4th of July they were having their annual Cherry Festival at Clinch Park. The cherry festival is a mush do, they had cherry everything, even jerky. We dd the whole festival and stayed for the 4th of July fireworks show. Watching the sunset from the park was so pretty. The show was made even better... More

This is a beautiful park. Park in the main downtown lots across the street if the park's parking is full. There is plenty of grass for the kids to play on, walking areas, a picnic area and a beach. Years ago there was a small zoo but it is no longer operating. This is a great downtown park.

Recently my Husband and I visited TC for a long weekend. During our time there we did carry out from one of the hotels and ate at Clinch Park. The facilities are nice with public seating, restrooms, and drinking fountains (with filling station for water bottles). This place was full of laughter and smiles with the love of children, families,... More

We walk this every day when we are in Traverse City. The trail goes along the shore in one direction, and into town in the other direction. The bathrooms are spotless. Lots of water activities and watercraft rentals and a nice little beach. Great views of the shore. Right next to downtown with lots of good restaurants and shopping. Good... More

This large waterfront makes Traverse City one of the many things I love about this place. They have many piers and docks, great green spaces, nice beaches and great trails - all are along with Lake Michigan shoreline

Excellent stop along the beach and marina. Some swimming areas perfect for the whole family. Nice walking paved walking paths (TART trail) along the water. Easy parking and restrooms nearby.

A great place to be during the Cherry Festival, watch the fireworks or air show. Also an evening walk on the pier and a sunset view.

With a Life guard during summer, my kids was able to explore their swimming skills in open water. Clean bathrooms, clean sandy beach with enough shades from trees. Watching people enjoy all kinds of water sports, kids play safely in shallow and clean water, we did not leave the beach. When you are done with beach you can walk to... More
