  • A lot of attention for the Oostvaardersplassen, but little attention is paid to the natural park in Lelystad. And that's not right because the natural park is a gem! It's quiet, many animals that are very close and often you can walk in between. Beautiful paths where you can walk or cycle. Near the entrance is a restaurant of Hajé where you can take a drink or snack. In warmer weather, on the terrace with views. This location is simply a must. Note to visit. Trek there for some time, because it's pretty stretched out.

  • We had expected half a zoo, but it was not at all! One should put his expectations after it is a park, and that there are opportunities to view individual animals. Many of these enclosures are so large and with as much flora, that the likelihood of seeing the animals are quite small. One can go for a walk in the area, but the site lends itself best to cycle around, since the paths are often very straight, and therefore "boring" to go. If it cycles around the outer edge of the entire Park should be approx. 20 km around. The place is nice to visit, if you are missing a great place to cycle around, and when the only expense is the 3 euro for parking, it is also a good destination. But do not expect more than a park. At the visitor centre there is also a small cafe/restaurant, where you can buy food at reasonable prices, and eat it at the tables, where you can enjoy views out over the Lakes.

  • A vast park with walking and cycling paths to see European species such as Bison, Otters, wild pigs, horses and others. As the park is rather big, a decent amount of walking is required but can be don...  more »
  • Wonderful nature reserve. Otters, deer, storks, bisons, horses, pigs, different types of birds. Lovely restaurant with large terrace overlooking the lake. Good for walking and/or cycling. Recommended.
  • Really great nature park inthe Flevoland. Looks as if you can 'do it' in an hour, but if you look around it will take a lot longer. Birds, bevers, przwalski horses etc. Free entrance but the parking costs €3,00 for the whole day.
  • Great park very quit in the evening..
  • Well if you have an hour or two... nature who doesn't love it? Well every Sunday afternoon after Church we go here... either my husband and my self or we bring our grandkids, family and or friends along with us. We have these long walks and we and the kids just love seeing the animals. It starts with the storks in their nests right at the entrance. And a bit further down one of the routes they have a field with a huge net where in summer the storks stay lots and lots of them The most we had seen at one moment is like 20 of them. They started of with just a few like 6 or so and these managed to breed... the parents don't migrate in winter they love their home so the stay but the young ones do. Then near the entrance you have the Otters and Wisent cows and Prozwalsky horses, you have deer and wild pigs further into the Nature reserve... really it is an AMAZING place and its huge... you can have early morning breakfasts while taking a tour with the park guide. If you would want to see the whole park you would really have to do that by car or on the bike if the weather is nice. I am absolutely sure that you will fall in love with this place. And after a nice walk you can sit and relax even more with a nice cup of coffee with apple pie and many other really nice foods.
  • Nice park, nice nature, good restaurant
