Located on the corner of I-290 and Lincoln Street, this 3.9 acre park has a playground, two basketball courts, a small baseball diamond and a walkway and benches around the park.
Seven hardwood trees and four Maple trees were planted along the Lincoln Street border to replace the vegetation that was lost during the highway exit expansion.
Holland Rink Playground was originally a part of Green Hill Park, until I-290 was built in 1967. This severed the Holland Recreation Area from the body of Green Hill Park, eliminating its swimming pool and making the land into a neighborhood park with a ball field and basketball courts.
If you want to practice fielding ground balls or just take some batting practice, this baseball diamond is perfect to hone your skills. Grab your gear and take to the field!
