New Nature Playscape at Window on the Waterfront Park
New in the fall of 2021, the Sally Smoly Nature Playscape is a gift to any kid passing through Holland, MI.
This playscape is nature play for all and is family-friendly.
Play features include climbing walls, tunnels, logs, boulders, slides, nets, and sandboxes.
There are two main sections in the playscape: a fenced-in area with equipment geared toward younger kids and a bigger area that will appeal to kids with longer legs.
Several picnic tables are onsite as well.
The whole park encourages kids to climb, crawl and play.
The boulders, trees, and structures have rough edges, just like they would in nature.
The park is open from dawn to dusk daily.
