Boardwalk Plaza in Downtown Allegan, Michigan

A place that I visited this summer was Boardwalk Plaza in downtown Allegan, Michigan.  It is also known as ‘Riverfront Plaza’.  What most impressed me were the boardwalks that wound around behind some retail and commercial buildings on one side, and the other side was this beautiful lake. 

Boardwalk Plaza in downtown Allegan is nicely landscaped, and quite picturesque.   There is a public gazebo for weddings, and the lake has a great backdrop in itself. 

No article about Boardwalk Plaza in downtown Allegan, Michigan would be complete without mention of the old iron bridge, which has quite a history in the town.  It used to be a two lane bridge until concerns about its strength became a matter of community debate when City Council members suggested the idea of removing the old bridge for over safety concerns.

The members of the community organized and fought the decision, and the bridge has been preserved as a one lane bridge and remains to this day one of the unique features just off of the Boardwalk Plaza in downtown Allegan, Michigan
