Celebrating Dune Harbor Park Muskegon County

May 19 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Dune Harbor Park Muskegon County is officially open to the public, and you are invited to celebrate!

Thanks to the generous support of the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund, landowner Robert Chandonnet, his daughters, Suzette Colon and Deanna Chandonnet, and YOU, Muskegon County has acquired the southern 214 acres of the Nugent Sand property to transform into a public park.

Join us to celebrate! There will be a short program beginning at 4:00 p.m. followed by group tours of the property. This is an outdoor event—please be sure to dress for the weather.

Please register below to let us know you are attending!
