“This park has really grown back naturally – the grasses, the trees, and we want it to stay that way. We want it to stay as natural as possible.”
MUSKEGON, Michigan – Muskegon County leaders are giving people a better idea of ââwhat to expect when Dune Harbor Park opens later this year in Norton Shores.
In a Zoom hearing on Monday evening, officials said the park, which was once a sand mine, will include a two-mile hiking trail around a lake, as well as two parking lots along Lincoln Street and Seminole. Road.
Aside from a few lighting and mileage signs, much of the first phase of the park will remain intact when it opens in the fall or winter.
âThis park has really grown back naturally – the grasses, the trees, and we want it to stay that way. We want it to stay as natural as possible,â said Mark Einsenbarth, Muskegon County Administrator.
For the second phase of the park, canoeing and kayaking, swimming, fishing, camping and picnic areas are all possibilities.
If Gov. Gretchen Whitmer approves phase two funding in December, Muskegon County will hold a hearing to seek public comment on the park.
