City of Holland: Kollen Park Rdevelopment and Expansion.
In 1998, a community meeting was held to discuss the possible redevelopment and expansion of Kollen Park, land that had been given to the Ci of Holland in 1921 to be used as a waterfront park for the public. Phase 1 begar 2003 and the final phases were finished in the fall of 2008. This 5 year project created a park that is ADA accessible, has 3 added boat launches, 6 day slips, trailer parking, and has increased the size of the park by 1/3. Furthermore, non-motorized use pathways aesthetically highlight the shoreline and Lake Macatawa and connect the west and east sides of town safely, by crossing only streets from western downtown Holland to Windmill Island on the east.
