If you need a break from the crowds of tulip time in Holland, or any time you want to stop shopping or dining in Holland, we recommend a visit to Kollen Park. Located on Lake Macatawa, a short drive from downtown Holland and about 35 minutes from our inn.
Ruth and I frequently visit the park to spend some quiet time together. For us, it brings back many memories of the time we lived a few blocks away and would often walk there. We even visited this park when we we dating, so many years ago. Ruth’s relatives would often spend a summer evening on lawn chairs neat the bandshell listening to concerts. The bandshell can be seen in the photo above and is still used for concerts. There is a statue set giving tributes to the Dutch (something we are happy to see, since both Ruth and I are children of dutch immigrants.)
Please share your experiences of Kollen Park with us.
