In February of 1996 the Holland City Council approved a sister-city relationship between Santiago de Querétaro, Querétaro, Mexico and the City of Holland, Michigan, USA.
Querétaro Fountain Plaza & Park Benches
The Querétaro Fountain in Kollen Park was given to Holland by its sister city in 1999, and is a symbol of friendship between the two cities. Six park benches, made in Querétaro bearing the city seals, were added to the fountain plaza and dedicated on May 11, 2006.
In 2000 a new children’s park was given to Querétaro from the Citizens of Holland for the community to enjoy. The City of Querétaro named the park, Parque Holland, which means “Holland Park,” and is a reminder of our Sister City friendship.
