BAY CITY, Mich. - It’s official: The Bay City Board Walk is finally open this summer.
The grand opening ceremony kicked off earlier today at Bay City Recreation Area.
We reported last week, the new boardwalk is closer to the beach with a shorter distance.
The boardwalk is also more handicap accessible.
"I've never been able to come this close to the beach. As an adult I haven’t been able to get this close because I use a wheelchair and so I'm so grateful to everyone who put the funding and the planning into making this happen today. It's opened a whole new world of fun here at Bay City State Park," said Melissa Davert, the first to cross the new boardwalk.
Although the grand opening is today, the board walk has been open since last week.
It will only be open seasonally and closed during the winter months.
