“Great View”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I love it when there is a musician playing music in the gazebo and you can sit in a chair, read a book, watch the people and listen to music. Feels safe and like you've gone back in time.

“The Heart of Saugatuck”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Wicks Park is a quiet spot on the edge of downtown Saugatuck. It's the home of the famous Chain Ferry and the beautifully painted public restrooms. The park is the site of several art and food festivals each year. Great place to sit and fish or just watch the boats go by.

Wicks Park was lit up for Christmas. Beautiful! In warm weather this would be a great location for a family outing.

“Quaint”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Like going back in time, with the river/harbor running next to it. Having a gazebo also adds to the old time flavor. Pull up a piece of grass, lay down a blanket and relax. Bring the dog. Music played in the gazebo at different times throught the year. Benches also provide place to ponder. Wonderful place.
