Belle Isle Park

Rich with history and natural beauty, Belle Isle Park is a Detroit gem and became Michigan's 102nd State Park in 2014 as part of a lease agreement with the City of Detroit. This 985-acre island park is situated on the Detroit River between the United States and Canada. Home to a variety of attractions, including an aquarium, conservatory, and the James Scott Memorial Fountain, this park provides a wide assortment of educational and recreational opportunities. Belle Isle Park is open year-round 5 a.m.-10 p.m. For special events ending after 10 p.m., patrons are asked to leave the island at the conclusion of the event. For the safety of visitors, contractors and staff, the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory and outdoor gardens will close to the public during a $10 million renovation project. The outdoor gardens will reopen in May 2023, while the conservatory is slated to reopen in May 2024. The work completes the final phase of a comprehensive plan to revitalize the upper 60 feet of the 80-foot-tall conservatory dome in one of the nation’s oldest turn-of-the-century glass houses still in existence. All other island attractions will remain open. (updated 1/30/23)
