One of the biggest freshwater beaches in the world, Lake St. Clair Metropark has over a mile of sand on a point of land jutting into Lake St. Clair, as well as an Olympic-sized swimming pool. Three marinas and eight boat ramps provide boaters with access to the lake. There are two boardwalks totaling 1600 feet in length and an extensive marsh area with nature walks. Canoeing, picnicking, a fitness trail, tennis and shuffleboard courts, miniature golf and an 18-hole par-3 golf course are among other recreation options, with ice-skating and cross-country skiing in the winter. It's worth the 40-minute drive from downtown if you like beaches and boats.
