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