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.

Nothing particularly wrong with this place and it seems to be a lively music and drinking spot, but for dinner I'd head elsewhere. The food is food service fare more than fine dining and, while not expensive, not really inexpensive either. Plus the atmosphere is low and dark, more befitting its bar/saloon scene than a restaurant.

Wicks Park is a great place to sit and take a break from shopping or from walking around town. Sitting by the water and watching the boats on the Kalamazoo River is enjoyable and relaxing. It is a good place to cast a line and see what type of fish you can catch.

Service was "okay"…food was just very average. Nice atmosphere but my salmon burger was dry and not very flavorful. Best part of it was the sauce they put on it but they skimped on the sauce. Hate it when restaurants do that. The sauce was the only thing that made it have any flavor.
