Windmill Island Gardens Reviews & Ratings
This is a lovely place to visit. I got to tour the windmill and see how it worked. They still process flour and corn meal. I got to meet and talk with the only woman in the US who can do the milling. It was a wonderful experience. The gardens are beautiful. The staff there are friendly and helpful. I will go there again. I highly recommend you visit Windmill Island Gardens!
Don't miss it! Beautiful gardens doesn't even begin to say how awesome they are! The windmill is amazing and the docents are totally in to the tours they give. We even got to meet the Miller! If you get there early on a good day you can also purchase some of the flour that's ground there! Lots of beautiful photo ops and even a playground for the kids. Great value for money and a relaxing spot to enjoy the day.
Windmill Gardens was a very well kept beauty. There was not much open during our visit in the late months of October but the gardens were still beautiful and tranquil to walk. The Windmill itself is a sight to behold. Worth a visit just for it's beautiful landscapes.
I took my out-of-town friends here because we were trying to knock out every tourist thing to do in west Michigan. I think it's $10 per person and you can probably get at least two hours of fun here. The windmill tour was informative and quick. The shop has lots of Dutch items (food, decor, souvenirs). If you love licorice, DEFINITELY come here - there are like 20 different types. The garden is very well manicured. I can see people holding events here because it's so pretty.
Well manicured grounds, with a lovely walking path around the perimeter. More flower varieties than I knew existed! This is not somewhere to go with a specific goal in mind. Come, relax, and take in the beauty. I'd knock off a star for personal taste, but that's unfairly subjective in my eyes. If you enjoy contemplative time in the park, you'll enjoy this place.
