In the fifth of the series on the 19 county parks in Door County, Director of Door County Parks Eric Aleson highlights a quiet, yet romantic and popular destination. Robert LaSalle County Park located along Lake Michigan in the southern region of Door County offers a unique split level of park amenities. Featuring an upper and lower level picnic area, Aleson says LaSalle Park has been the site of many proposals and weddings.
LaSalle Park is located about 10 miles south of Sturgeon Bay on 23 acres of land with three-tier landforms including shore beach access of Lake Michigan. The park, which was purchased by the county in1929, is named after French explorer Robert De LaSalle who landed at the site in 1679.
