Another nice stop in Holland. Beautiful boardwalk along the water. Statue given to the city by the Netherlands. Great place to go for a walk.

A really nice park with a very large play-scape for the kids. The entire area is grass and borders the south-east end of Lake Macatawa. It is only about 1/2 mile from downtown Holland and next to a great restaurant favorite, Boatwerks ($$$).

This is a very large park, on the Lake Macatawa waterfront. It's a city owned park that is beautiful right on the waterfront. Play area for children to climb and slide on.

We stopped in Holland on our way home from Saugatuck and thought we would just walk around the main shopping area but happened to come upon Kollen Park and decided it was better to walk along the river. A great choice! Very pretty, very quiet...More

The walkway isn't that long. I'd say 1/4 to 1/2 mile. Probably better places in town if you are a runner.

Unfortunately, pets are not allowed at Kollen Park. Pets are welcome at many of the Ottawa County Parks or at the area's two dog parks. Thanks!
