Parks & Pavilions
The Indian River area has several comfortable and scenic outdoor facilities where you can host family gatherings, base your recreational excursion or just sit quietly and watch the world go by.
DeVoe Beach on the shore of Burt Lake has picnic tables, grills and a pavilion. It also offers swimming, a volleyball court and a handicap accessible pier with benches for fishing, watching the boats go by or enjoying seeing the sunset over Burt Lake.
BURT LAKE STATE PARK
Burt Lake State Park, in addition to having more than 200 campsites, also has a day area with a beautiful swimming beach, pavilions, picnic tables, volleyball court, softball field and lots of sand to build a sand castle. The park also has a boat launch and boating area.
Marina Park located next to the Indian River Chamber of Commerce has seen several improvements in recent years. There is now a pavilion, children’s play area and year-around restroom facilities. Marina Park also has a boat launch, access to the North Central State Trail and is within easy walking distance of Indian River’s downtown business district.
Topinabee Park is located in the center of Topinabee next to the Topinabee Library and adjacent to the Topinabee public beach on Mullett Lake. Large, stately trees provide shade and there’s a pavilion where the library hosts a children’s story hour during the summer. The adjacent beach has swimming and a children’s play area.
The Green Dock is located on a bend in the Indian River, just west of the Indian River Bridge off of Chippewa Beach Road. On a hot summer day, the Green Dock is often busy with swimmers jumping into the river. However, on a cool morning or evening, the benches at the Green Dock can be a calm and serene place from which to watch the river.
Hide-Away Park is small, secluded little turn-around next to the Indian River off the end of River Street. There’s a bench there to sit on or you can sit on the edge of the wooden walkway and let your feet dangle down toward the river as you commune with the ducks swimming past.
