A relaxing walk along a very polluted river. Walk down town, or along Lake Michigan at the Holland State Park. Building Window on the Waterfront was a huge mistake

We walked this trail around 6:30 am and found it to be very unpleasant (we were here after tulip season). Not sure what part was worse - the aggressive bugs, the lack of cooling breezes you typically get from a lake, the smell of the...More

It's a quiet natural park along the water. Nice for walking, just sitting, enjoying nature and relaxing, It's a passive park without lots of activity.

Visited during the Tulip Time Festival and the somewhat linear park did indeed have some beautifully planted flower beds. There's a walkway and some wooden decks overlooking the marshes where some birdlife such as ducks,song birds and geese could be seen. Don't miss the sculpture...More

A wide expanse overlooking marshland. Nature abounds, however, it's colors over the marsh are bland. The tulips in bloom in the adjacent fields were nice and popular during Tulip Time 2018. Clean paths and expanse. Some shade only. Free.

I was here in early July. The tulips were long gone, however, this is a really pleasant walking / biking path with beautiful views of the Macatawa marsh. You can also see the Windmill from here. There is a baseball field, viewing decks and boardwalks....More

We saw good reviews with photos and walked here from downtown Holland. We must have missed the main area because we saw swamp and broken down bridges next to a wastewater treatment plant.

Many rows of tulips with signs identifying names. Window frame for taking pictures so it looks like you are looking out of the window. Free to tour and ample free parking.
