Live life leisurely.

What’s your idea of leisure time? Aerobics and a light workout? A morning stroll on the Wellness Trail? Playing the back nine on one of our local golf courses?

And for those 50 and older, the perfect leisure hangout spot is Evergreen Commons. Designed for folks in or nearing their retirement years, it’s one of our town’s standout facilities.

Care for a swim?

With six pools, over one million gallons of water and a fantastic play area for the kids, Holland's Aquatic Center. is another example of Holland’s love of water. And so is Holland's outdoor swimming option, Bouws Pool.
