Thijsse first wrote about a possible national park between Bloemendaal and the North Sea Canal in 1944. As a result, the national park De Kennemerduinen was established in 1950.The national park Zuid-Kennemerland was established in 1995. It comprised De Kennemerduinen, several nature reserves managed by Vereniging Natuurmonumenten and some other areas.GeographyThe park is situated west of Haarlem in the province of North Holland in the west of the Netherlands. It is located within the municipalities of Bloemendaal, Velsen, and Zandvoort. It includes the southern portion of the region known as Kennemerland.South Kennemerland is characterized by sand dunes. The park, about 38km2 in size, also includes some estates, forests on the dune fringes, and coastal beaches. The dunes used to be a watershed for the city of Haarlem. Large amounts have been won for consumption. In 2003 these activities were ceased allowing the groundwater-bubble to grow again. There is a small public swimming area open in the summer at a location called the Wed on the road between Bloemendaal and Zandvoort. The train from Zandvoort to Amsterdam travels through the park.

  • A stone's throw from Amsterdam and Haarlem lies this beautiful quiet natural park where the Highlander cows make out the service. We were here in the winter and even with nature in sleep was the hike. And not to be despised, a drink in the Duincafe the Kennemer dunes at the entrance to "Koevlak" is well deserved after a brisk walk. Take a walking card the way not to lose in the vast dunes area.
