Windmill Island Tulips

A beautiful oasis on the edge of downtown Holland, Windmill Island Gardens features a 250-year-old working Dutch windmill "De Zwaan" (meaning graceful bird). The windmill, which reaches 125 feet from the ground to the top of the blades, towers over 36 acres of gardens, dikes, canals, and picnic areas. Over 100,000 tulips bloom in the spring. In the summer, annual plants and flowers decorate the grounds.
