Sand beach and grass for laying in the sun. Lake for swimming and swimming recreation things for kids. Sometimes busy, but sometimes quite relaxingly not too many people. Ideal for picknick and drinking wine and beer with friends!

Wow - what a find! A superb water park, play area, sports centre - we spent the day here and our children really didn't want to leave! The water park has bumpy slides, there's an artificial beach and lagoon - lifeguards on duty throughout. Lots of different areas to explore including swings, climbing frames and all the usual things you'd... More

The blaarmeersen is a nice place to go and take a walk, or just sit near the lake and enjoy a bit of peace and quiet. There is a cosy bar restaurant area too, food was not amazing, ok for a snack but not much more.

I go there a couple of times per week for a run. It's fantastic! You can run, swim, relax, pic-nic, lay on the beach... My favourite place to escape from a busy city.

This is a nice place to seek some coolness in the summer, or sport in the outdoors. It is easy to go to and has some really nice spots. There is also a lot to do for kids! But there are always so many people, sometimes it is too much. If it is not too crowded, it is a great... More
