"MEET ME AT COOK PARK,
ALLEGAN, MICHIGAN"

The steamer Mildred carried passengers to and from Cook Park until about the time of W.W.I. The park was located at Cady's Grove, about three miles upriver from the dock behind the bank in Allegan, though the trip was much shorter by land traveling south on M-40 just beyond Thomas Street. Cook Park was "the place to go" at the time, for picnics, family gatherings or just to spend some time listening to the band play in the gazebo.
