Nature Park and Wildlife Garden ‘Tussen de Venen’, Muntendam, Veenkoloniën, Groningen, the Netherlands

In Nature Park and Wildlife Garden ‘Tussen de Venen’ you can walk on various hiking trails in this 50 hectare nature park. Here you will find various landscapes with associated plants and animals. There is an extensive network of hiking trails, some of which are also accessible for disabled people..

Various mosses and ferns grow in the moist parts of the area. Special trees and shrubs have been planted in the park. This area was former agricultural land and has been excavated and scraped. It is mirrored to the nature development area with ponds and relief. However, there is some intervention in nature; part of the area is grazed with goats and sheep to keep it open, another part is left untouched.
