AmericaJR’s Gloria and Jerome Rzucidlo recently visited Bayfront Park in Petoskey, Mich. This former industrial site was reclaimed as a linear park featuring 7,800 feet of public shoreline on scenic Little Traverse Bay. The park features various facilities and amenities. It is well maintained and provides varied uses for Petoskey residents. It is considered one of the “treasures” of the Petoskey park system and Emmet County. Bayfront Park is easily accessed to and from downtown via a pedestrian tunnel.
Bayfront Park is located along Lake Michigan’s Little Traverse Bay from west of Ingalls Avenue to south of and adjacent to Belle Avenue to US-31 east of Stuart Avenue.
