      Marquette Park Recognized by Travel Site

      Presque Isle Park in Marquette is being recognized by one of the top travel websites in the world.

      The park received a 2014 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor. The award is given out to places that are very well reviewed on the website over the past year. City officials say it is quite an honor for a community of this size to receive this award.

      "Its a testament to what the values of the city over time have been," Assistant Director of Community Services Jon Swenson said. "I think its also a testament to the vision that this community has put into parks and recreation and into what their community is going to look like."

      Swenson said this is the first time that he knows of a Marquette park receiving this award.
