Two marine's, the famous carferry's port, a boating channel to lake Michigan, boardwalk to the lighthouse, are in your view at the park. There is a nice playground for children of all ages. The park is all grass except for windy sidewalks that take you on a complete tour. Bronze statues are uniquely scattered throughout. It's the best place to... More

We visited the park the evening before we were to take the SS Badger ferry across the lake to Manitowoc. A nice, relaxing place to visit, and we will return!

I stopped by Waterfront Park when I was in Ludington and I'm sure happy I did. There are many sculptures and many benches, a beautiful view of the water, just very pleasant. It isn't a huge park, so it is perfect for a little walk, there is a place for kids to play...just a neat little park.

The water front park is beautiful. Great place to walk, bring kids and play on the play ground or go and just have a picnic. Nice place to watch the sunset or the Badger go out.

This park has a beautiful waterfront view as well as being a great spot to see the carferry, which crosses Lake Michigan daily from Ludington to Manitowac. The statues are amazing and virtually indestructible. Children will love the playground and adults will find the benches a great place to sit while their kids are having fun.The concerts held in the... More

Waterfront Park has become a cornerstone for activities in Ludington. It is the best place to watch the last C&O car ferry, The SS Badger leave and come home. There are many sculptures and benches and more and more activities during the season take place here such as the Rythm & Dunes concerts, the recent boat show and more. As... More

The folks...and city of Ludington...love there park and it shows. It was so much fun running down and sitting on the beautiful grass along with so many other and watching the "Badger" car ferry enter the harbor and docking after it's crossing from Wisconsin. Do you ever get tired of watching this sight evening after evening? I guess...after awhile...and you... More

My kids played at the park for well over an hour and would have stayed longer if I let them. I enjoyed the path to walk around the park while still being able to see them. And (as is popular now) many PokeStops and sightings that kept the kids busy as well. I personally loved all the statues around the... More
