“There are only a few premium sites left in the Dutch market, and even in the European market, which are suitable for developing large-scale public attractions, in terms of both location and audience. Park21 is one of these sites and what’s more, it offers the unique advantage of an optimum visitor market.”

Haarlemmermeer working on Park21
Situated right in the middle of the Amsterdam metropolitan region, a 1000-hectare polder landscape is awaiting your initiatives. We’re calling the area Park21, the park of the 21st century. We’d like to create Park21 together, working with residents and farmers, but most of all with you, entrepreneurs and other public parties. Park21, incorporating polder, park and play, will have a range of qualities – quiet and dynamic, spacious and secluded. Your various initiatives can enable us to give it international appeal. Closer to the point: nine million people are within an hour’s travel of the area.
There is a range of visitor needs, varying by the person and the day, and they will change over time. Accordingly there is a range of possibilities for initiatives in Park21. From camping on a farm, school gardening projects and an educational nature centre to in-line skating routes, a recreational lake with boats for hire and restaurants. From an open-air theatre, horse exhibition facility and baseball stadium to playground, art gallery and sailing school.
Park21 will provide economic and social benefits to the residents of Haarlemmermeer as well as the entire Amsterdam metropolitan region. We hope you’ve caught the spark, and we’d like to call on your pioneer spirit. We’d very much enjoy talking with you about your plans for this unique site.
