PARK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — The state is hosting a virtual meeting Thursday evening to learn what people would like to see at Holland State Park in the next couple of decades.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is working the 10- to 20-year general management plan for the 140-acre park west of Holland. The plan guides the state’s efforts to protect natural and cultural resources, allow for recreation and expand education.
