With children

Hey, pssst, children! Did you know that there are tons of things for you and your friends to do here? Certainly if you like getting dirty on a mud slide, petting animals in a children’s zoo, climbing and scrambling in a play and action park in the woods or going on an adventurous trip through an exotic jungle garden with parrots, flamingos and meerkats. It’s all fun with your parents or with your best friends.


play fun

In the middle of the Voorsterbos woods near Kraggenburg lies Play & Activity park De Voorst. It’s a comfortable park with fun for the whole family. There is an air trampoline, cable slide, climbing and scrambling tower, wobbly bridge, go-cart track, swings and seesaws for children up to 12 years old. There is also an 18-hole midget golf course, jeu des boules court, and you can play ball shooting or go on a treasure hunt. In the park, steps and bicycles can be rented, and there is a cosy terrace with a snack counter. Do you want to treat your children? Then have a meal in the pancake restaurant.

Netl de Wildste Tuin

for the real adventurers

Children who love adventure will have a great time in Netl de Wildste Tuin (the wild gardens). Wander through the largest bamboo jungle in the Netherlands, build huts, play hide and seek, balance on tree trunks, climb up hanging ropes, race on the cable slide and get dirty on the mud slide; there is a whole world to discover. Playing and romping are delightful on the beach, and when you need to cool off, then just jump in the water. If there is still time remaining, take a look in the carnival mirror for a smile that will stay on your face for quite a while.

petting animals

Petting zoo Emmelerbos is located in the middle of the woods and has an adventure playground as well as lots of cute animals to pet. There are guineapigs, a cow, goats, sheep, pigs, birds and chickens. Or take a look around the butterfly garden or at the bees. The children can also ride around on the available bicycles and scooters. And there’s a fun playground for their use. The daredevils can try the cable slide and slide. Once a month a special activity for children is organised at Petting zoo Emmelerbos, which always has some link to nature.
