The marina is tucked away within a beautiful, upscale community.

The entire complex is outlined by the Cal-Sag bike trail, a 26-mile-long trail stretching from Archer Avenue in Lemont Illinois to the Burnham Greenway near the Indiana border.

A newly constructed bridge is visible from the marina.

The Joe Louis Golf Course is only a short walk away. This course features a championship layout and a signature 614 yard, par five 7th hole, the second longest par five in the Chicagoland area.

The course also offers family events, accomodations for golfers with disabilities, leagues, senior specials, lessons, and lots of ways golfing enthusists can enjoy their time.

There are approximately 1-3/4 miles of trails in the areas around the housing that circle and interconnect with all parts of the site. Adjacent to the marina parking lots a permeable Boardwalk which connects the residential zones with the docks and to the Birdwatching platform and the mulch trails in other areas of the site. The publicly developed Cal-Sag Multi UseTrail connects with points west such as the Metra Station, and downtown Blue Island, and a pedestrian bridge crossing east to Riverdale and the Joe Louis Golf Course. The present trails are used by walkers, joggers, and cross country skiers, among others.

Additionally, Fay’s Point has made possible Rowing events such as the Southland Regatta at Fay’s Point, Big Ten Men’s rowing hosted by the University of Wisconsin, and scrimmages with high school teams. The straight section of the Cal-Sag channel north of the Fay’s Point Peninsula is an ideal rowing venue with a 2000 meter course starting at the MWRD SEPA station and finishing at the remnant of the Blue Island Locks at the tip of Fay’s Point.
