Point of Interest Details

The Zeeland Park Arch is one of the last remaining artifacts of the Zeeland Park. Zeeland Park was created in the 1930s by local businessmen who raised money by charging admission to town basketball games. Once sufficient funds had been raised, a tract of land at the south end of main street was purchased for the city park. The city of Zeeland was then granted federal funding from the WPA (Works Progress Administration) to build a baseball park with grandstand and the distinctive arch that still stands today.
