The lake is home to a historic carousel, and is a great place to boat, fish, picnic, and comb the beach for lost treasures. In the summer months, this is one of the most visited parks in town, especially since there are also free Friday night concerts here. For a more natural outdoor experience, head over to the Harris Nature Center. This is a great place for wildlife lovers of all kinds. You can go cross-county skiing or snowshoeing in the winter, and hiking or biking during the warmer months. Whatever time of year you go, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for critters of all shapes and sizes. If you’d like to learn more about the park and the natural areas in Michigan, be sure to check out the exhibits at the center. There are also a few special programs that you won’t want to miss, including story time and nature programs for the kids, snowshoe classes, and a moonlight ski program. What an awesome place!
