Lake Erie Metropark is a park in the Huron-Clinton system of metro parks. The park is a 1,607-acre (6.50 km2) recreational facility located at the mouth of the Huron River on Lake Erie and consists of meadows, a marsh and lagoons. It has a three-mile (5 km) shoreline along the lake and is a popular bird-watching site. The Park has a wave action swimming pool, an 18-hole regulation golf course, the Marshlands Museum and Nature Center, boat launches and a marina. The children's play area, previously featuring a child-size town, is now under construction as a newer, more modern, playscape area is being built. [1] [2]
