Copper Harbor Playground

The nature inspired playground at the Copper Harbor School, adjacent to the Grant Township Park, is the only one of its kind in the Upper Peninsula! Keeping with the family friendly and natural atmosphere of Copper Harbor, the playground blends into its surrounding environment, making it a place where children and families gather.

There are two sections; one for kids ages 2 to 5 and one for 5 to 12 year olds. Included in the equipment are multiple slides, climbing rings, a dome and swings. This is a state of the art, accessible, inspired by nature play space that promotes healthy, imaginative play.

Location: Copper Harbor School, adjacent to the Grant Township Park

Township Park

The park is located in the center of town and is a great place to picnic or just hang for awhile among the cedars. The public is welcome to use the park for day use only. There is no camping or overnight parking allowed.

Hunter’s Point Park

Level: Easy

An absolute favorite special spot in the area, Hunter’s Point is one of the few “flat” areas around and allows for an easy hike or snowshoe along both the Lake Superior and Harbor shores. There are 2 Trail-heads to Hunter’s Point Park. One is just left of the boat launch at the Copper Harbor Marina and the other is further west of the marina with signs leading the way down North Coast Shores Road, which will take you to a parking area and a handicap accessible viewing boardwalk.

There are great birding opportunities on the point, especially during migration. Flora is abundant; wildflowers, lichen, mosses and cedars, hardwoods and pines. The geological formations are special on the point. The basalt in this area is the oldest rock on earth-essentially, the earth’s crust. It’s like a window to the past.
