WOW Nature Play Park

Progress Towards Goal


ODC Network is part of a matching gift campaign with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC)’s Public Spaces Community Places program. From now until July 19, every dollar, up to $50,000, will be doubled helping us complete our fundraising.

We invite you to help us bring more WOW to Holland’s downtown where residents and tourists love spending time. The ODC Network (ODC) has designed a new multi-age, family friendly, state-of-the art, nature play and learn park for the Window on the Waterfront Park (WOW) located on 6th Street. This space is just two blocks from downtown and this campaign will complete this project and bring a wonderful amenity to our community!​

Already people of all ages enjoy the park’s tulips, the walkway along the Macatawa River, soccer fields and a view of the old windmill. We want to add the one acre WOW Nature Play Park in a central greenspace. 

The Design:

The WOW Park has been designed in partnership with the City of Holland and GMB A/E. Our design team follows national best practices for outdoor learning spaces, so the WOW Nature Park will include the following:

How will your donation help?

Imagine net climbers, 20′ embankment slide, 48″ quarry boulders, 20″ tunnel, play sand and logs, playhouse and lookout, ​benches and hammocks, trees and shrubs. Or if you enjoy construction, imagine wheel loader, mini-excavator, boom truck and skid steer. Your donation helps pays for all of these. Once construction begins, feel free to watch the progress which for some may be ALMOST as fun as the actual play once the WOW Park is done.

You can help by…

You can help by, of course, donating to the campaign right here and then sharing news of the project with family and friends.  Use the Patronicity sharing tools on this site to help share the campaign.  Link to ODC using your own social media tools.​  Talk about it!  Visit the site!  We will keep you updated on all the progress and the opening date.  What’s most important to ODC, though, is that you play, create and learn at the WOW Park in the months and years to come.

If you prefer to give by check, make checks payable to ODC Network and mail to ODC Network, 4214 56th St, Holland, MI 49423. For additional giving options or to learn more, reach out to the ODC Network Development Team: Dave ( or Ashley ( or call 616-201-7858.
