Topinabee invites you to join us along the shores of Mullett Lake in northern Michigan where the good life is always in season.

TOWNSHIP PLANS FOR PARK IMPROVEMENTS
The Township is submitting an application for a MNRTF Grant to make additional improvements to the park area to include additional defined parking around the area of the restrooms and at the north end of the pavilion.    It will include a rain garden and drainage to better handle storm water runoff.   A pathway will connect the pavilion and parking area with the trail and the new ADA pathway down to the lake and new beach area.    A retaining wall will be built along the highway in the parking area adjacent to the existing restrooms and the kayak rack will be installed down by the lake so people have a place to put their kayaks.  Native plantings and new trees will be featured.  The plan is below:
