Waterfront Park opening postponed

Harrison Township closes Waterfront Park every winter because the restrooms are not heated / insulated. This winter brought some damage to the seawall, and we secured a grant to reconstruct the shoreline. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 shutdown has delayed the construction timeline. We will not be opening Waterfront Park as usual this spring because it would not only be difficult to get a contractor to repair the shoreline, but it would be financially impractical to make repairs only to tear them out once construction can begin. We regret any inconvenience, and encourage fishermen to visit the fishing locations at the mouth of the Spillway, as well as Lake St. Clair Metropark and the DNR sites.
