Attraction details
Reviewed 23 January 2018

Kollen park is located at the foot of 10th street in downtown Holland, Mi. This ample parking at both the north and south ends of the park. Unobstructive views of Lake Macatawa, childrens play area, family picnic areas, and a band shell where the Holland American Legion Band plays a free concert every Tues evening during July and August.

There is a boat launch site for boaters.

Kollen park is connected by a board walk which follows the lake front for nearly a mile.

Nice boardwalk down the waterway. Near Boatwerks restaurant. Walk to the other end and watch the boats launching. Lots of green space. Playground for kids is large and nice. Lots of picnic tables under the shelter. There's a music stage and often there are community activities happening here.

Kollen's Park is a small park on the shore of Lake Macatawa in Holland, Michigan. There is playground equipment and picnic tables available. Ample parking (most of the time) is available for visitors. One of the neat additions to the area in recent years is the walkway built along the shore of Lake Macatawa. Some of the lumber was donated by the Heinz Pickle Plant from the brine barrels they used to have on their property. Pick a pleasant day and take a stroll down the boardwalk to enjoy lake views and some of the beautiful shoreline scenery.

Kollen Park is located on the southwest side of Lake Macatawa. There is plenty of room to roam around, run, or do many other outdoor park activities. There is a nice playground area for kids to play on. There are restrooms, a band shell area and wonderful views of the lake. It was relaxing and peaceful when I visited.

Kollen Park is situated on the lake. It is a tranquil, waterfront park featuring a band shelter, playground, boat launch ramps & picnic areas. Many people fish over the railing. There is plenty of room for frisbees and kite flying. It is dog-friendly but please pick up your poop! If you just want to sit and watch the lake and all the activity around you, there are benches along the walkways. The yacht club is at the end of the park so you can watch all sorts of boats come and go. Very enjoyable but be prepared for a lot of people.
