Fremont may be best known as home to Gerber Products, originally known as the Fremont Canning Company. Today Fremont is known worldwide as the baby food capital of the world. The third full week of July, Fremont celebrates this notoriety by hosting its annual National Baby Food Festival. Over 100,000 people visit Fremont to enjoy a week full of events for people of all ages and all interests.
Fremont is also proud of its four community parks, and rightly so. One of them, the Arboretum Park, is devoted to Michigan’s native trees. Over forty different species of trees are identified in this park. The park’s trails and its cobblestone bridge over the stream, make this park a popular place for outdoor summer weddings and photo sessions.
Another park, the Fremont Lake City Park, is located on the north side of Fremont Lake, a 790 acre all sport lake. This park has 17 acres of lakefront for the public to enjoy, along with a boat launch, sand beach, volley ball court, picnic tables, a covered pavilion and a full service RV park and campground. On the south side of the lake you will find the Sheridan Township Park, also with lake frontage to enjoy.
The Dutch moved into the area in the 1800’s from the Muskegon and Holland area. Today, a visit to the main street is a reminder of the Dutch heritage, as many of the buildings in the business district reflect Dutch architecture.
Fremont is close to many golf courses, Newaygo County’s many natural lakes rivers, streams and the Manistee National Forest.
