Ottawa County dedicates new park June 27

HOLLAND, Mich.—A new park is opening in Holland.

Macatawa Greenspace will be dedicated Thursday, June 27. The event will also feature disc golf demonstrations and nature stations, along with light refreshments and food available for purchase.

Macatawa Greenspace is located at 1230 Paw Paw Drive, the former home of Holland Country Club.  The 122 acre site features an 18 hole disc golf course, 2.5 miles of trails, scenic overlooks, bridges, boardwalks, picnic tables and rustic toilets. 

Macatawa Greenspace was also designed to improve the water quality of Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan.  When Ottawa County purchased the land in 2010, workers began restoring the site’s original, native flood plain forests and wetlands, which filter out sediment and pollutants before water enters rivers and lakes.  Wetlands also help control possible floods, soaking up and storing extra water.

Thursday’s dedication event runs from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
