Obtaining A Well
Due to high demand, there is a waiting list for each of six well sizes: 22', 24', 30', 32', 34', 40'. To be placed on a waiting list, please apply at City Hall.
There is a $25 fee to be placed on the first waiting list and $5 for each additional list. Wells are offered to the waiting list based on seniority.
If you have a well and wish to have a dock box, you must buy one from the City. All boxes are installed and removed by City personnel. Previously used dock boxes may be available for purchase for half price. Contact the park office for prices and purchasing information.
All fueling must be done in the lake. Fueling boats in the marina is a fire hazard, as fuel can spill into the water and onto the dock. Should any spilled fuel ignite, fire would rapidly consume neighboring boats. Violations will be documented by Department staff and reported to the Harbor Master.
Grosse Pointe Boat Club
Do you have a boat, wish you had a boat, or just have interest in boating? Check out the Grosse Pointe Boat Club, an organization of boating enthusiasts that operates out of Neff Park.
GPBC members include owners of power- and sailboats, retired boaters, and people who simply like boats and the water. The club is open to everyone, with special emphasis on boaters with wells at Neff Park. Membership is just $40 per family per year.
The club sponsors social events during the boating season and organizes overnight boating trips to locations along Lake St. Clair. Annual events, which take place at the “Littlest Club” at Neff Park, include a lobster boil and chili cook-off. Kids are welcome at all events.
From June through August, the club runs sailboat races out of the park at 7:00 pm on Wednesday evenings. The booms that you hear are from the cannons that start and end the races. Residents and club members are always welcome to watch the action at the end of the pier, but bring your earplugs! If you would like to crew, come down to the marina between 6:00 and 6:30 pm and the racers will direct you to a boat. It’s a great way to get out on the water and meet new people.
