Our first visit. Greatly enjoyed Windmill Island Park. Tour of the windmill was very interesting. The grounds were immaculate with beautiful flowers and landscaping. Nice gift shop and concession. Will definitely visit again.

Probably not a great place for teenagers, but adults will love this place. A very pleasant place to spend the afternoon. However, the food selection is very limited, so eat before you come here.

What an absolutely beautiful park to walk around and spend a few hours. The flowers were gorgeous and the walk around/in the windmill was great! Highly recommend a visit.

Pretty neat place to visit. Great for history buffs to learn about the only true Dutch windmill in the states!

I don't remember seeing anything on the sign that says that and there is nothing on the website. I'd give them a call since you are local.

Get there early, Holland City did add a parking structure, not that far away. (There is also some parking on the grounds)
