A portion of The Strand (Belle Isle Park's perimeter road) temporarily closed

A portion of the east end of The Strand (Belle Isle's perimeter road), located between the Athletic Shelter and the Lake Okonoka Bridge, will temporarily close through May 1,2020 for construction of a box culvert. This 10-foot-square box culvert will be installed on the park's south shore that will allow native fish passage back into the Detroit River from Blue Heron Lagoon and Lake Okonoka.

Park visitors should expect the following:

  • Traffic will be rerouted onto Central Avenue.
  • Woodside Drive will be closed to through traffic.
