A palette of color awaits you as you wind along the entrance to Holland's treasured island. Tour five stories of the DeZwaan windmill, the only authentic Dutch windmill operating in the United States. From the top, you can survey 36 acres of manicured gardens, dikes, and canals. Costumed guides, an Amsterdam street organ, a hand-painted Dutch carousel, a beautiful children's garden and playground for families, and gift shops will complete your visit.
Windmill Island Gardens can also accommodate groups up to 40 in our Posthouse Gathering Room (evenings only) as well as larger events in our Celebration Pavilion (available anytime.) The windmill and our beautiful gardens make for a unique backdrop to your meeting or event.
Open seasonally, Mid-April to mid-October; see Windmill Island Garden's website for exact dates for this year.
