One of the great pastimes in Michigan is bird watching and Pentwater is no exception to having an assortment of beautiful birds to see. There is a bird watching sanctuary located at the ponds behind the DPW Building. Parking is available behind the building, as vehicle access is prohibited near the ponds, foot traffic only. Another great spot for bird watching is at the Longbridge Road Bridge Boardwalk.
Historic Pentwater: Vibrant and Growing, Then and Now
For more than 150 years, the Village of Pentwater has supplied a variety of natural commodities to communities around the Great Lakes. The area is rich in farming, fishing, and tourism and provides respite from the hectic life of the big cities in the Midwest.
Pentwater lies at the outlet of the Pentwater River, nestled between Pentwater Lake and the Lake Michigan shore.
The Pentwater Historical Society, founded in 1982, was created to remind visitors and residents of the history and heritage of Pentwater and the role that the natural areas surrounding it played in evolvement of our community's heritage.
