Belle Isle is a microcosm of the city of Detroit. Potential for destination-city status abounds, but there's much to overcome to achieve it. When and if that happens, though, Belle Isle will no doubt be part of the reason why. Designed by the same man who planned New York's Central Park, it's an oasis of green. It has a great view. It has some wonderful facilities, including an aquarium, a conservatory, and a beautiful, huge marble fountain. It's home to the Detroit Yacht Club. Belle Isle also has a closed zoo, restrooms in poor condition, and eyesores like a dilapidated nature center oddly juxtaposed opposite a new, beautifully landscaped golf course. Though this ride is classified as a ramble, riders should be experienced and game for an adventure. Terrain: Flat.
