Named after former village president Frank Wicks, this park offers great river views and picnicking.

This is a small park on the Kalamazoo river in the center of downtown Saugatuck. It's a pleasant spot to sit and watch the boats pass by; the cute chain ferry is also here. Ducks will come begging. There's a gazebo with occasional live music....More

Having a cup of coffee here and watch the boats sail by is a great way to relax. The park and boardwalk are very clean. The park has many benches and tables available to sit and relax.

Great place to just sit, relax, and take a break while exploring Saugatuck. Plenty of benches to sit on. Watch out for joggers, they tend to frequent this area during the day.

No biggie here. A dime a dozen grass area that fronts on a not very interesting water front. Skip it.

My husband and I really enjoy visiting the Wicks Park when we're in town both during the summer, and since they are opened in the winter, we're ther too. Great food, great service, and great live entertainment.

The gazebo, the well kept grounds, the view of the river, all make this a place to put up a lawn chair or throw down a blanket and just enjoy the views.

Music in the park every Wednesday with free concerts sponsored by local businesses. Bring your lawn chair, food and drinks and listen to the music while you watch the boats go by.
