Take a trip down the Yellow Brick Road in Holland, Michigan.

Please join us in supporting an enchanting outdoor exhibit located on the grounds of Herrick District Library and Centennial Park. Bronze sculptures, a living floral mosaic, the yellow-brick road, and whimsical horticulture will honor L. Frank Baum who penned the classic tale, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, while staying at his family cottage in Macatawa.

In Centennial Park, annual plants will be used to create a 10’ X 12’ “open book” cover of this classic novel.  The iconic Yellow Brick Road will lead you to Herrick District Library where it winds through landscaped areas of colorful annuals and perennials. Six life-sized bronze sculptures from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz will be placed along the Yellow Brick Road, allowing visitors to interact with them. Not only will children find this exhibit enchanting, but kids of all ages will enjoy seeing these beloved characters in Holland!

The Oz Project is a collaborative community project spearheaded by the Holland Area Visitors Bureau and its partners, Holland in Bloom, Herrick District Library and the City of Holland.

If you are interested in supporting this project, we are excited to offer an opportunity to purchase personalized yellow brick pavers.
