It is not only a great park, but they have two museums dedicated to the early Dutch and French settlers in the area. The Acadia one has a gentleman who is Dutch and knows a lot about the area.

If you are in the area it is worth a stop at this museum/park. The Arcadia house is worth a visit as well. There is Dutch and Tex Ritter memorabilia available for viewing and the gentleman who works there is very nice and informative.

The small park behind the windmill is a must-see when you visit Nederland!! It has gazebos and very interested information on Tex Ritter whom was originally from Nederland before he made it big in music and film.

The windmill has limited hours that change depending on the time of year. Be sure to go when you can go inside. It is a museum of the history of Nederland with a lot of Dutch artifacts.
