There is a fun play area in the woods near Purmerend. It has passages for creeping and crawling and plenty of water. There are jetties, stepping stones that take you to an island and a rope bridge over a reed-filled canal. There is plenty of opportunity to climb and scramble, play games of hide and seek, and you can build huts from loose branches. The woods are really big, so you can go there with your whole family or all your friends! A great place to celebrate your birthday.
Do you want to go on a voyage of discovery? You will find all sorts of things on the Phoenix Path. Look for the letters on the trees, read the poems in the woods and discover which birds live there.
