Great place to ride your bike, eat pancakes and look at goats. We We also saw some great bisons and you can lie on the grass and watch a million planes overhead

Big green area next to the city. Some parts really look like a forest. Would be nice to have more Horeca, we didn't see any places to grab a coffee or eat something

Just outside the city and not yet in the Schiphol airport area, this relaxing park is located. Rather large for a park and large sections of woods, although not comparable with more natural woods like The Netherlands has in the Eastern part. Many grass fields...More
