DETROIT (AP) - State recreation passports are now needed on vehicles to allow access to Detroit’s Belle Isle park.

This month marks the anniversary of Belle Isle operating as Michigan’s 102nd state park. Starting Sunday, all vehicles entering Belle Isle will need a recreation passport.

During the past year, vehicles could access the island park without a recreation passport until the vehicle owner’s next registration renewal date. Now, officials say, Belle Isle visitors driving without a recreation passport will be required to purchase a window sticker at the park.

Pedestrians, bicyclists and those using public transportation can enter the park for free.

Belle Isle became a state park under a 30-year lease agreement with Detroit. Recreation passports are required for vehicles entering Michigan’s state parks.
