Take a Walk in the Woods at Cartier Park
This park features multiple paved walking paths, a dock for fishing, and Ludington’s only dog park, “Central Bark.”
At any time of year, Cartier Park provides a calm nature walk through the woods. Even on a hot, sunny day, the paths remain mostly shaded by a canopy of tall White Birch Trees. And in the fall, colorful leaves paint the paths.
A gazebo with a view overlooks Lincoln Lake for a cozy spot for watching the waters of Lincoln Lake float by or have a shaded picnic.
Don’t feel like walking? Grab your bike, scooter, or rollerblades and take a venture through the woods to a dog’s paradise!
