Theme Park
“Very nice and small-scale amusement park for children from 2 to 12 years old. In good weather also opportunity for swimming, there is a beach and swimming pool. Plenty of picnic tables available to bring your own food and drinks. Speelpark Oud Valkeveen is located in a beautiful wooded nature area between Huizen and Naarden. For the past 95 years it has been a paradise for children who like 'just playing'. The park has a large playground, a theater, a private beach at the Gooimeer and for adults enough places to enjoy the sun and nature . Even in bad weather, you can play here in one of our indoor attractions.”

“After a day out and about on the water, who would feel like cooking? The HarborHouse restaurant is the ideal location to sit down to a great dinner. But you can also just drop in for lunch or drinks! Why the HarborHouse? The main ingredients that make any visit to the HarborHouse a real delight are its great views, delicious food and relaxed ambiance. ”
