Grand Traverse County Officials Seek More Safety Improvements At Twin Lakes

Officials are looking into ways to make a Traverse City park safer.

Three teens have drowned over a four year span in Twin Lakes Park in Long Lake Township.

Last year, the Grand Traverse County Parks and Recreation Commission approved several safety improvements.

Then, in March, the Commission rejected a proposal to ban swimming in North Twin Lake.

Now, they’re considering stronger penalties for swimming outside designated areas.

A water safety expert will review practices after the June 20th Commissioners Meeting.
