“A Pretty Park off Lake Macatawa”

Kollen Park & Heinz Waterfront Walkway
Ranked #9 of 42 things to do in Holland
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 October 2017

This is a very pretty park. It also has a very nice kids play area and public restrooms as well. It has an outdoor theater which often holds public activities and grills as well as plenty of picnic tables on both sides of the theater. There is also parking on both sides of the theater. It is connected to a really nice scenic boardwalk that stretches along Lake Macatawa, which by the way allows you to fish along it. It is a very popular park for the locals and holds several events during the summer including a really nice 4th of July Fireworks party. We go to this park quite often for picnicking and a walk along the boardwalk and we attend the fireworks every 4th of July. You do not need to call for reservations unless you wish to use their pavilion. It is an open park. One thing else, Lake Macatawa flows into Lake Michigan at Kollen616-355-1130 Park. The lake is actually a pooling area where Macatawa River ends up and because the river flows so fast it pools there forming Lake Macatawa where the mouth of the river is and ends up in Lake Michigan eventually.

This park is right on Lake Mac. Boat ramp, fishing area, Boardwalk that is about a mile long. Pic nic areas. Bathrooms. Next to Boatwerks waterfront restaurant. Playground and lost of grass. They also have a band shell with concerts all summer long. It's only a mile from downtown Holland shopping district.

It was cool rainy day to walk from the Heinz waterfront at Lake Macatawa through downtown to the Windmill Garden Park. Love the wildlife and assortment of bushes and flowers. Great walking path in Kollen Park, restrooms and plenty of benches and seating.

After a wonderful dinner at Boatwerks we walked over to the park where listened to band play while our daughter played on the playground. It's absolutely wonderful at sunset.

In the center of Holland, this park offers a chance to take a beautiful, lakeside walk or a quiet place to read. There is a bandshell that features, many Tuesdays throughout the summer, concerts by the Holland American Legion band...97 years young!
