Tawas City, MI - Town Square

Town Square

Town Square, 513 W. Lake St., was constructed shortly after this lakefront property was purchased from two gas stations in the early 1990s. This 3.2-acre area is within Shoreline Park, giving the community nearly 1,500 linear feet of uninterrupted Lake Huron shoreline. Town Square includes a small open-air building that is used for weddings, concerts and other events with 12 benches 8 feet in length.  This area also includes a memorial honoring Lt. William Bowen, a Tawas City resident who died while serving his country in the South Pacific in World War II. In 2022 the deck behind the building was removed and the shore line was stabilized with rock.

In 2024 the City of Tawas City installed kayak rental lockers. There is a non-motorized watercraft launch at this location that will allow you to paddle in Tawas Bay in Lake Huron.

Town Square can be rented by clicking on Park Reservation Form.
