Belle Isle Beach remains closed due to the Michigan DNR results that show elevated levels of E. coli, and will remain closed until water sample tests indicate the water is safe and healthy for the public.  While the E. coli levels have dropped within the last few days, it is still unsafe to swim at Belle Isle Beach until further notification.


The Detroit Health Department is committed to addressing public health concerns, and building thriving communities. View our Programs and Services.
