People across West Michigan braved the cold spike on Saturday, April 13 to view the Holland waterfront from a new perspective. The boat tour event, made possible because of a partnership with 1 Adventure Company, allowed the community to experience the waterfront from the water, including views of the urban and natural landscapes.

The boat rides began at the Kollen Park Boat Launch and proceeded northeast to the JDY site and then west along Dunton Park. Below is a look at the sights from one of the earlier tours.

The next steps in the Waterfront Holland process following the boat tours include two four-day design charrettes held this week and May 20 – 23. These charrettes are intensive, multi-day sessions where expert designers will work within our vision and guiding principles to generate several scenarios.
