Park managed by Ottawa County
About Paw Paw Park
Address: 1230 Paw Paw Drive Holland, MI 49423
With the addition of formerly known Macatawa Park, the now 172 acre Paw Paw Park is a naturalist's dream come true.
The bridges, boardwalks and observation decks follow the river, offering beautiful, scenic views of nature.
Paw Paw Park encourages visitors to enjoy the park on paved or natural surface trails, a playground, or during a game of disc golf.
During the colder months, enjoy the silence of winter on snow shoes or cross country skis.
Trail Difficulty: Easy
The Playground at Paw Paw Park
Smaller yet engaging playground with a tall slide over mulch on the west end of the park.
The Walking Path at Paw Paw Park
Half-mile paved walking path.
Hiking Trail Details
Hike through the natural trials of the east end of the park to explore the wetlands restoration project.
As you climb a few hills, you'll see gorgeous flowers, cattails, and even an apple tree. Several bridges cross the river.
There's an 18-hole disc golf course alongside these trails.
Instead of heading east, you can go west and start at the small play structure.
These well-marked natural trails have signs along the way to teach you about the wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for frogs and monarch butterflies!
You might even catch a Rainbow Trout!
Trails on both ends of the park can be muddy and have obstacles like fallen tree limbs in your path.
