Visit Legacy Plaza in Downtown Ludington
Make your way through the new Legacy Plaza that sits on North James Street, right in the heart of downtown Ludington.
Surrounded by local shops and restaurants, the plaza features a farmers market pavilion, restroom facility which is open year round, stage, a gas fireplace, seating, and decorative lighting.
Through a grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, this $2.1 million project came to completion and was dedicated on July 1, 2021.
The plaza is designed to honor the legacy of the Native Americans who lived in Ludington. It also looks to honor the lumber and maritime industries that are so engrained in how Ludington grew as a city.
Be sure to stop by the Legacy Plaza to shop in the Farmer’s Market or get some delicious takeout from one of the downtown restaurants to enjoy in the park. Also, check out our calendar of events to learn about live music at the Legacy Plaza.
