A beautiful oasis on the edge of downtown Holland, Windmill Island Gardens features an over 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 manicured gardens, dikes, canals and picnic areas. Costumed guides give tours of DeZwaan through-out the day.
