Having a cup of coffee here and watch the boats sail by is a great way to relax. The park and boardwalk are very clean. The park has many benches and tables available to sit and relax.

Great place to just sit, relax, and take a break while exploring Saugatuck. Plenty of benches to sit on. Watch out for joggers, they tend to frequent this area during the day.
