Very interesting history of the area and the windmill. Beautiful park to leisurely walk through and enjoy a afternoon. We visited right after Labor Day so it was not crowded but very enjoyable.

The gardens are lovely. There are lots of activities for children and adults. The gift shop has many collectibles imported from Holland. A very nice and relaxing way to spend a few hours or a whole day.

Too many people on the tour, and it made it tight. They should have split the group in two. A large number came from a bus tour. It is 5 stories up, but it was not a hard climb. The guide was very good. Garden...More

Very interesting and a great place to walk and see the gardens. Will have to go back in tulip time! Probably take 1-2 hours to enjoy, we stayed 3+ hours to walk.

Recommended by our host. Went there after amorning at the beach. Beautiful little park. The windmill tour was more interesting than I thought it would be. Great place to get a little exercise and kill a couple of hours.

This turned out to be a surprise as we really didn't know what this was until we got there. So glad we did as we learned so much about the Windmill and how it got here, how it operates and the authenticity of it all....More

I don't remember seeing anything on the sign that says that and there is nothing on the website. I'd give them a call since you are local.

Get there early, Holland City did add a parking structure, not that far away. (There is also some parking on the grounds)
