the "AMSTERDAMSE BOS" was artificially created from open "polder" fields and meadows during the economic depression around 1930 to give the unemployed a meagre income.
Now after 84 years the mature woodland west of AMSTELVEEN, south west of AMSTERDAM BUITENVELDERT,is a vast urban forest.
The constant noisy from planes landing and departing from nearby SCHIPHOL reminds the visitor of it,s urban setting.
Nearby THIJSSE-PARK and BROERSE-PARK offer a more varied flora and at the north side there is good bird watching at the southern shore of NIEUWE MEER.
A free botanical garden VU HORTUS BUITENVELDERT (workdays only)is just east of the AMSTERDAMSE BOS at vanboechortsstraat
