West Olive is part of Olive Township which is home to over 4,300 residents and spans over 36 square miles. From the Lake Shore Bed & Breakfast to the north to Port Sheldon Park to the south, West Olive spans along the beautiful coast along Lake Michigan and is made for the outdoor-enthusiast and those looking to kick back and relax along the shores of the west side of the state. Located north of Holland and Saugatuck, West Olive and Olive Township offers a more rural feel inland and many picturesque miles of water on the west side of the city.
West Olive and Olive Township were originally settled by the Dutch who came over in the 1850’s. Most of the initial work in West Olive revolved around forest clearing which produced a lot of lumber, however, there was not much of a market for it at the beginning so a lot of it was simply cut and burned. With the building of the West Olive Railroad Depot in 1897, more commerce ran through the community as well as a passenger line allowing residents and visitors to have a convenient spot to embark. The railroad line still exists well over 100 years after its founding and supplies the Consumers Energy Power Plant with coal.
For those who live and visit West Olive, they will have access to many beautiful parks that offer nature trails, abundant wildlife and plenty of opportunities to have fun with the family. Some of the parks in West Olive MI include:
