Natural Park

Come face to face with special animal species in a beautiful setting

Face to face with a herd of Przewalski horses or a group of rooting pigs? Discover many special animal species in a beautiful setting in Nature Park Lelystad.

Nature Park Lelystad is an important link for many endangered animal species on the way to a life in the wild. For example, the Nature Park is the habitat of the bison, wild boar, red deer, Przewalski horse or even the moose. Storks, otters, beavers, mouflons and Father David's deer also live in the park. The animals live in large habitats so it is always a challenge to spot the animals. There is an extensive system of kilometers of walking and cycling paths along the animals with picnic areas at various places
The park has a restaurant with a fantastic view over the central lake and there is a visitor center where you can buy a map, rent a bicycle or obtain information. Groups can explore the park by boat or excursion vehicle led by a guide.

The visitor center

The starting point for all activities in Nature Park Lelystad is the visitor center. Here you will find a beautiful exhibition, a game for children and the possibility to watch a film. A little further on, children can build a beaver lodge. The hosts are happy to receive the guests in the shop full of gadgets and gifts. The visitor center is open daily from 12 noon to 5 pm (in the months of November to March until 4 pm). There is much more to do around the visitor center. There is a nature play park, a water garden and an outdoor theater.

Please note that the opening hours of the visitor center may change due to holidays, current events / restrictions. Therefore, always check the Nature Park website for the current opening times prior to your visit.

Compose your own walking or cycling route

The router machine is located next to the entrance to the visitor center. Compile your own walking or cycling route here based on personal choices. For example, go for a short route along the otters or a long route along the wild boars.

A duo bike costs € 5.50 per bike per day. The bicycles may only be used within the park. You can rent bicycles during the opening hours of the visitor center.
