Passes must be picked up in advance at park headquarters by May 30
The Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear will take place at Belle Isle Park May 31-June 2. New this year, race organizers are offering a limited number of complimentary day passes for visitors who want to access the east part of the island – where Grand Prix events are not taking place – during the race weekend.
These one-day passes will be valid on the island May 31, June 1 and June 2, and will give visitors access to regular park activities such as fishing (with a valid license), swimming, picnicking, walking and more. The golf course and zoo will not be open during race weekend.
There are 150 passes available for giveaway each day, now through May 30, on a first-come, first-served basis during designated hours. That daily limit on passes was chosen based on estimated available parking.
Visitors should be aware that other island attractions may be closed during the Detroit Grand Prix; visit BelleIslePark.org closer to race weekend for closure details and other information about the Detroit island park.
