What to Do?

Bittersweet Resort

Thurl Cook Park

Do you feel that sometimes your fur babies get a little cooped up during the winter and have the need to release some energy? I know with my dog, that the word “park” means time to run around and have some fun. In Plainwell, Michigan Thurl Cook Park in Plainwell has you covered. They have a dog park that is sure to be a hit with your four-legged friends. Of course, it’s also good to mention, that they have a 100-foot hill for sledding. Talk about a fun time for the family. They even keep the hill lit up for evening sledding. In addition, they offer tennis courts, a playground area and more. 

Why Explore Allegan & Plainwell?

“Allegan is an amazing community to live and work in. It’s close enough to the larger cities, but you still have the small-town feel.” Commented Adele Garcia, Product Manager at Honor Credit Union and resident of Allegan, MI since 2002. “The City of Allegan has done an exceptional job of hosting events throughout the summer on the Riverfront and expanding the businesses in the area. We chose to live here and would choose Allegan again if we had the chance!”
