” Let’s go to the BEACH!” is my B’s number ONE request after school every day. Campus Martius has made a beautiful beach to run, jump and play in. With both sun and shaded seating, a water fountain to wash your feet in plus a HUGE fountain to gaze at, your kids will be happy you came. Bring their sand toys if you really want to knock their socks off!
The Compuware building is just a few feet away with clean public bathrooms and benches to rest for a moment in the air conditioning. The indoor fountain is amazing to watch and will give your kids a giggle. Street parking is readily available and lots of little eateries (mostly well-known national chains) are all within a hundred yards.
The “beach” has a bar and patio geared toward adults too with a full service bar where you can enjoy a beer and stick YOUR toes in the sand. On the flip side of the fountain is a beautiful grassy area with tons of bistro seating and a gelato stand. The stage area has programs listed on the Campus Martius site year round.
What’s your favorite time of year to visit Campus Martius?
