If it will get as hot as last year, then what could be better than plunging yourself into cold water? A good find on the edge of town is De Zeven Stroompjes in the Voorveldse Polder, a park located behind Hotel Mitland. It’s a fairly shallow lake with a mini-beach and a green island in the middle, which you can only get to by crossing a wobbly bridge, taking two rafts and a rope bridge. Great for the kids! It’s a good idea to take a picnic with you because there are no shops or cafés in the vicinity.
