Public Places: Parks/Reservations
The trademark of this park is its mile-long sand beach, the largest in the state. In addition to its popularity during the summer season with picnickers and swimmers, the area is home to many plant species typically found only along the Atlantic Coast.
Mentor Marsh, which was designated a national natural landmark in 1966, occupies an ancient, abandoned channel of the Grand River. A beech-sugar maple forest occupies the higher elevations bordering the marsh. At the eastern edge of the preserve, there is a mixed oak swamp forest, a type destroyed in most parts of the Lake Erie region.
