Description
Located just north of the ore dock in Marquette's Lower Harbor, the 22 acre Mattson Lower Harbor Park has a large grassy open space area, park benches, picnic tables, Kid's Cove Playground (a very large wooden play structure built through community donations and volunteers), an architecturally designed period concession/restroom facility, boat ramp and a large nearby breakwater. The shoreline bike path runs through the park and an illuminated walkway with period style lighting parallels the waterfront along the bulkhead. The Park has become the City's most popular location for special events, playing host to such activities as The Seafood Festival, the International Food Festival, Winterfest, concerts, fireworks and other large gatherings. An outdoor ice rink (lighted) is located in the park during the winter months. The 101 slip Cinder Pond Marine, completed in 1995, is located immediately east of the park.
