LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan now has 102 state parks with the addition of Belle Isle in the Detroit River.

The island will retain the name Belle Isle Park along with current park rules and hours as the Department of Natural Resources officially took it over from the city of Detroit Monday. The city and state signed a lease for the park last November.

Several projects will continue by the DNR over the next six months, including restoring and reopening restrooms, clearing brush and debris from trails, anchoring all trash cans to the ground and repairing all the plumbing in the park.
