The natural playground has several pools of water, a water play area with sand and a pirate island. There is also a picnic area for parents.

Pupils from Het Startpunt primary school were also involved in designing the playground. "Our children were asked to help design this playground," says Patrick Heuchemer, a teacher at Het Startpunt.

The natural playground has several pools of water, a water play area with sand and a pirate island. There is also a picnic area for parents.

Pupils from Het Startpunt primary school were also involved in designing the playground. "Our children were asked to help design this playground," says Patrick Heuchemer, a teacher at Het Startpunt. "The children and staff from the municipality got to work. They were able to shape this together, then an architect started working on it."

Lots of different plant species with a wide range of colours and flowering times will be introduced to the playground landscape. The groundwork for this has already been laid on the dike and near the ditch running between Prinses Julianalaan and Willem Marislaan. Apart from all this, the playground has also been provided with what are known as 'wadis' to collect rainwater. Rain that falls on the adjoining schoolyard, the flats or the street flows into the wadis. This allows the water to be collected and retained more effectively during heavy rainfall so that the sewers do not become overloaded.

"So, it is really a nature playground. There are also few climbing racks made of iron. It isn't a standard playground!"
