When you enter Antrim County's Elk Rapids Day Park, you step into nature. After a busy day, take time to enjoy the trees, the sound of birds, the feeling of the breeze on your skin, and the smell of the earth as you unwind and recharge.
Try the park's many hiking trails or enjoy a picnic using the 2014 Deborah Wentworth Memorial Pavilion. There are also picnic tables and grills in various locations throughout the park. A bath house near the pavilion offers modern facilities in season and the parking lot is open May to October. A pedestrian entrance allows use of the park year round.
Art Rapids!, a local non-profit group, has worked with the County to develop an outdoor sculpture park, the "Walk of Art," that is drawing visitors from far and wide. In addition to the sculptures, Art Rapids! also hosts workshops and events in the Elk Rapid Day Park.
Directions to the park: Located on Grand Traverse Bay - just outside of the Village of Elk Rapids on South Bayshore Drive.
