“Poorly Organized”

Veterans Memorial Park
Ranked #13 of 41 things to do in Bay City
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 July 2016 via mobile

Nice place to go and enjoy a view of the Saginaw river.

However, when there are multiple events going on at the same time, there appears to be zero coordination between those events. Recently River Roar and Weird Al concert were the same weekend but the parking and other activities overlapped without apparent realization the other event was going on.

This may be an unfair reflection of Vets Park since I do not know how much influence the park has over the events.

On nonevent days, there are many picnic areas, tennis courts, ball diamonds and scenic views. In the winter the hills are great for sledding.

The park has had a few setbacks in recent years. One of the larger play areas for children had to be removed. There are also no Grills for cooking.

During early spring through summer this is a very beatiful park for walking. From the beautiful flower gardens all kept up by private entities to the views alongside the river. There are also various stations that have pictures and stories of the past history of Bay City, Mi. Average time of walk is approx 1 hour up and 1 hour back.

Ride your bike, fish, people watch. Busy place to be in the summer. Clean. There's a boat launch. In the winter, there is sledding.

You can start at one end of the city, walk across the Riverwalk pier and end up all the way across Veteran's Park. A vast, beautifully kept park along the water front. A special spot to relax and picnic.
