Sanctuary Woods Preserve Information:
Just around the corner is a beautiful, 40 acre nature preserve with wooded walking trails that overlooks Eldean Shipyard. One can also view both Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan from the Top of this Dune. A creek runs through the lower portion of the park, and about 200 steps take you to the top, where several trails and spectacular views await. Birds, Deer, Squirrels, Turkeys, Raccoons, and Chipmunks are some of the Animals that inhabit this preserve. The former Interurban Railway passed through this site and part of the old bridge remains. The Interurban brought vacationers from Chicago and Grand Rapids to Macatawa from around 1898 until 1926.
From the Shipyard, turn onto 32nd Street. After the curve, turn right onto 66th street. The entrance to the park is about 1/4 mile south, on the right (West) side of the road.
