Belle Isle is a beautiful island on the Detroit River. It’s now an official state park and there’s lots to do here.
The Belle Isle Sawmill processed tons of lumber for the city of Detroit from 1905-1980.
The Detroit Red Wings are partnering with the Arboriculture Society of Michigan Foundation to help raise money to restore this historic sawmill.
According to the DNR, Belle Isle also has a 200-acre wood, a rare wet-mesic flatwood forest that covers 20 percent of the island and includes rare pumpkin ash and Shumard oak trees, as well as a variety of other hardwood trees.
