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.

We walked around the "Window on the Waterfront" both morning and night to try and get the right light for photos. It has tulip fields just like in Holland The Netherlands. We enjoyed it.
