The first phase of Muskegon, Michigan’s Dune Harbor Park will open in March 2022, after Muskegon County announced it had purchased 214 acres of the Nugent Sand property, a former sand mine. The first phase to open to the public will allow visitors to hike the forested dunes, kayak on the man-made lake and enjoy 200 feet of Lake Michigan beach frontage. The park will prioritize access, recreation and conservation.
The Dune Harbor Park is on the 377-acre Nugent Sand property, one of the largest, most unique natural landscapes in the region. The northern portion of the Nugent Sand property remains in private ownership and closed to the public for now.
