The Presque Isle Events Gazebo & Picnic Area
The Presque Isle events gazebo and picnic area is nestled in a stand of tall oak tress. A fitting place for outdoor family activities or an outdoor adventure seeker who may need a pleasant place to rest, or have to have a picnic. The nestled covey of tall oaks provide a canopy of shade from the Summers heat, along with a cool-breeze that comes off of the chilly Lake Superior.
Many weddings have taken place at the gazebo, which can be reserved for a cost. You may wish to contact the Marquette's starting point: Lake Superior Community Partnership in regards to more information on weddings on the island. The Presque Isle events gazebo and picnic area offer a wonderful place for the travel photographer to compose shoots of natural beauty, especially in Autumn.
Almost everyday of the week through-out the entire year, the gazebo can be used by anyone, anytime of day. It offers three bench seats and is ordained with decorative wrought-iron trellises. The spectacular splendor of Autumn color reigns supreme in the gazebo and picnic area each September through October. A site-seeing must see!
The Presque Isle Marina offers transient boat-slips for those that may wish to seek some land-locked outdoor family activities and site-seeing on Presque Isle Park: The crown jewel site-seeing spot of Marquette Michigan. In fact, just at the top of a staircase near the Presque Isle gazebo is the grave site of Chief Charley Kawbamgam, the last Chippewa Indian chief that resided on the island with his wife Charlotte.
