South Beach Park

“He that can have patience, can have what he will.” – Ben Franklin

I'm always on duty.

South Beach Park is apparently one of the most popular beaches in Marquette. I was unaware of it when I first visited the Marquette beaches, so I went back to see this one. It was late September though, and closed for the season. Fortunately for myself, I am my own active, non-certified lifeguard… The beach does look like it could be popular. There is nice playground equipment and the beach is really nice sand… the water is shallow but has a sandy bottom… Seems pretty nice. But I think Shiraz Park to the North is nicer. Perhaps South Beach Park is more popular for younger crowds, and Shiraz Park is more popular for the high school and college crowd? Either way, both have Lake Superior water… and I do love beaches.

Here’s a Google Map. And here’s the Shoreline Viewer


Next to the power plant...

All the toys I could possible need.

It's after-season...

Basically, I'm a large child...

But I'm an expert of beaches...

    Oops…it’s Shiras Park, not Shiraz…..too much wine perhaps??? Seriously, I love your sites, as I am a former Yooper, having spent over 20 yrs growing up there.
