Family Activities:

Belle Isle Park


Situated in the middle of the Detroit River between Michigan and Ontario, the Frederick Olmstead designed Belle Isle Park is a nature lover’s dream! With an aquarium, science center, zoo, beach, grand fountain, lighthouse, driving range and the oldest continually running conservatory in the U.S, there’s something for every outdoorsy, nature-loving family member to enjoy, all within a few minutes of downtown Detroit.

Bring a camera for the striking views of the Detroit skyline! While you can drive onto Belle Isle Park all year, the attractions are only open in the warmer months (for good reason — it’s incredibly windy and cold out there in winter!)
