Tawas City, MI - Shoreline Park Playscape

Shoreline Park

Adjacent to Town Square, Shoreline Park recreational identity comes from the 450-foot-long pier with an additional 100 feet added in 2021 to create a L-shaped pier. In 2020, the park also received lighting upgrades and an addition of 9 day docks.  The regulations for Shoreline Park Day Docks can be found here. The presence of the pier encourages active (fishing) as well as passive (benches) recreational opportunities. Aside from the pier, Shoreline Park, 429 W. Lake St., is also equipped with picnic pavilions, a food concession stand, restrooms, boardwalk along the beach and playscape for the children.

In 2022 the Quota Club installed musical play instruments in the park for the kids to enjoy.

Coyne Oil Inc installed two additional Charge Point CLS/SAE car charging stations in 2021.

The Concession stand was remodeled in 2012 with new log siding and a steel roof.

The park was renovated in 2013 with a DIG Grant.  The parking lot area was doubled,  new ADA compatible sidewalk that runs across the length of the park, a new playscape , a electric car charging station, benches, bike rack, new lighting and new signage.

Two crosswalks were installed to cross Lake Street in 2015.

In 2016,  the existing restroom was razed and replaced with a new restroom with an additional restroom constructed at the south end of the park.

An ADA compatible swing was installed on the existing swing set  in 2017.

Tawas Point Lighthouse is visible from this park. The 8.2-acre park is host to the annual Shoreline Arts & Crafts Show, on Memorial Day weekend; the Tawas Bay Water Front Fine Art Festival the 1st weekend of August, the Tawas Antiques on Tawas Bay the 2nd weekend in August and the Labor Day Arts and Crafts Show on Labor Day weekend.
