Lake Erie Metropark and Marshland Museum

Just a short drive from the city, behold three miles of captivating Lake Erie shoreline and sweeping vistas that you can only get with a Great Lake and great river at 1,607-acre Lake Erie Metropark. Plan on adding some recreational activity to your day with an 18-hole regulation golf course, the “Great Wave” swimming pool, Marshlands Museum and Nature Center, boat launches and a marina. Hike through miles of nature trails or kayak along coastal wetlands. In the winter, walk along a cleared 1.6-mile paved trail, cross-country ski along 4-miles of flat, groomed trails, or ice fish for perch. Smaller guests are never forgotten with a brand new children’s play area with slides, mini-rock wall, and swings. Experience the splendor of this Southeastern Michigan lakeshore treasure and make some of your best memories today.
