Adjacent to Town Square Park, Tawas City Park's recreational identity comes from the 450-foot-long pier. The presence of the pier encourages active (fishing) as well as passive (benches) recreational opportunities. Tawas City Park is also equipped with beach volleyball courts, two picnic pavilions, and a food concession stand with restrooms. Tawas Point Lighthouse is visible from this park. The 8.2-acre park is host to the Fourth of July fireworks show and the annual Shoreline Arts & Crafts Show on Memorial Day weekend. These events attract thousands of visitors. Both the park's pavilion and gazebo can be rented individually or together.
