Recommended by our host. Went there after amorning at the beach. Beautiful little park. The windmill tour was more interesting than I thought it would be. Great place to get a little exercise and kill a couple of hours.

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.

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)
