The water is very dirty. The beach is pretty small and they have buoys limiting how far you can go out and swim. But hey, at least we have a beach in this city.

For a city beach, we're lucky to have one. Just be sure to check the water quality before you go and stay within the swim bouys watching for the strong currents.

Facing the Detroit River.... small and not a lot to do... unless you like sitting in the sun and baking! Nothing of great interest around to visit or see..... you are better off going to a public pool!

Sorry, I'm not a dog owner. I didn't realize dogs were allowed in the water. It seems to me that it would be dangerous to swim with a leash on, but I do think there is a sign saying all dogs must be on leash. It's a city... More
