Walter Mary Burke Park – New Baltimore

The Walter and Mary Burke Park is just off 23 Mile Road.  The park is located at 36300 Front Street in the heart of downtown New Baltimore.  

This park offers a nice little beach for swimming, a dock for fishing, outdoor and enclosed pavilions, tons of picnic tables, restrooms, benches and two playscapes.

 Parking was wonderful, there were a ton of spots open close to the park entrance.  We walked down the short sidewalk and right down to the beach.  Rosa, Carlyn and I enjoyed playing in the warm water.  

The park hosts two play structures, one is huge and probably intended for children over the age of 4 (at least).  Carlyn navigated much of it with no problem, but I felt very nervous letting her climb so high.  The play structure was way above my head.

The second play structure was much smaller and more suitable for Carlyn, not that she wanted anything to do with it. They both enjoyed playing on the structures and moved on to the swings. 

Overall this park is very clean and a great small park for the summer.  Plus, it has the added bonus of being free!
