“Wander the paths, kayak through the gorgeous canals, set up a BBQ on the beach, get a game of baseball or soccer going...this is a great summer spot. What I love most about Belle Isle is the diversity of the people who come to enjoy it. It's truly a great reminder that we're all the same, that we all want to enjoy life, that we're all here together :)”
