Interactive Fountain, Children's Museum, Outdoor Cafe, Green Features
The $20 million Silver Beach amusement area is a project that was several years in the making. Abonmarche staff were involved in the project since its inception, helping to create the site Master Plan, assisting with grant procurement and developing the design of the buildings and site. The project includes an interactive fountain, a new Silver Beach Carousel, Shadowland Ballroom, Curious Kids’ Museum annex and an old-fashioned boardwalk. The project, which is directly adjacent to Lake Michigan, also includes a commercial serving kitchen for a banquet hall and outdoor cafe. Many “green” items were included in the plans to facilitate grant opportunities, reduce operational costs and preserve the environment. The project has resulted in increased use of Silver Beach County Park and has helped to increase business for downtown merchants.
