    Walked in the park in which working-class houses read houses are built from the legacy of Snouck of Lang. The history is great. Beautiful planting and a village in itself. The Snouck Loosenpark's in Enkhuizen is one of the first social housing projects of Netherlands. The park opened on July 5, 1897 consists of 50 workers ' homes ' and 1 ' overseers apartment '. The construction of the Snouck Loosenpark's is paid by the Snouck of Loosenfonds, administrator of the legacy of Margaretha Maria Snouck of Lange (July 23, 1807-30 October 1885), the last living of six (childless) daughters of Cornelia Petronella van Lang and Samuel Said. In her will was mentioned that they had the will to build and maintain workers ' if the city wants to cede grounds '. "Every home of decent size and space with triple beds and enough rainwater cistern for low prices and rent to families through sustainable work he does and good behavior above others Excel", stands in the testament of Margaret Mary. Either, you belong or not to the richer layer of the population, but you conduct in daily life were important to qualify for a House for rent in the Snouck Loosenpark's.

    Map location here in TA is wrong. It is the green space right near the railway station. A small, well kept park with nany old, small houses. Lovely detour on a walk to or from the railway station.  more »

    You get into this ' Park ' through a beautiful stone arch that might suggest to an Italian garden. In fact there are wide gravel walkways that line villas and mansions, much to look really a kind of Park, as I had already seen in London. There is also a small waterway with bridges and flower beds. Especially interesting for the social architecture of the green. See, it's a little different from the gardens we are used to.
