Perfect place to walk, ride a bike or just relax on the lawn overlooking Lake Erie. There is a place to launch a boat or just look at boat docked or in the water.

They can't seem to attract a decent restaurant since Crawdaddys closed many moons ago. The current cement building restaurant that just recently opened (near the ice cream stand) is in an awkward location for the "ambiance" they are trying to sell. Would not make a...More
