Park

Het Volkspark was designed as park for the people in 1872. It was a gift of factory tycoon H.J. van Heek who intended to give his employees an place to relax. It is one of the first public parks in holland and, at that time, it was situated outside the city. Since 1888 fairs are organised in the Volkspark. The profits from the fairs, a eastern-fair and a autumnfair, are used to maintain the park.
