The Absolutely Ginormous 982-Acre Park In Detroit The Whole Family Will Love
Summertime is the time to make family memories, but it can be tough to find a spot that offers something for every member of the family. The best park in the city is located right in the middle of the Detroit River, and it offers a wealth of recreational activities. Plan to spend an entire day at Belle Isle Park, where you can paddle in a kayak, burn some energy on the playground, wander through a historic conservatory, and much, much more.
Editors Note: Currently, several of the attractions at the park are closed due to COVID-19. Visit the website for updates, and put them on your bucket list for later.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
