Plenty to see / do
With an area of no less than 40 hectares, Lelystad has the largest, most adventurous and most educational play forest in the Netherlands. With over 140 playground equipment along and over the water, various walking and cycling routes and plenty of seating areas, picnic tables and facilities, the Belevenissenbos ensures that you can organize your day as you wish. Whether you fancy an active afternoon full of discovery and adventure, or you prefer to sit back and enjoy the surroundings, nothing is too crazy!
More than a play forest
The vast area is especially suitable for those in the 6 to 16 year age group. This is the age that children learn to discover their environment and develop skills to survive in their 'natural' environment. The Belevenissenbos offers them such a beautiful natural environment consisting of forest, water and meadow. Real nature! The educational aspect has been shaped by basing the elaboration of the play areas on four themes: sports & exercise, water management, archeology & prehistory and nature education.
The Belevenissenbos is maintained by Stichting Belevenissenbos Lelystad and by hard-working volunteers. The visit to this play paradise in nature is also at your own risk. We recommend that you visit the website adventissenbos.nl to check for visitor information, location info, frequently asked questions, info about visiting with larger groups or even camping options.
