After all the hectic of ships and crowds last weekend we took a walk in our nearby woods. At the entrance of most woods in the Netherlands you can find a sign like this placed by "Staatsbosbeheer" (State forest management). This is a public organization commisioned by the Dutch government and manages a sizeable amount of the nature reserves in the Netherlands.
They maintain, restore and develop our natural and cultural landscapes and promote the outdoor recreation.This signs says:

City woods  Almere
Free walks on roads and paths
No acces: 
- with no leashed dogs
- with bicycles outside the specified route
- to motorized vehicles and horses

Linking to "Signs, signs"

9 opmerkingen:

  1. Rules are clearly spelled out. A walk in nature after the crowds must have felt good.

  2. Our own National Park Service (NPS) just celebrated its 99th birthday yesterday. Thank goodness for these types of organizations!

  3. Nothing so beautiful as a well-maintained park.

  4. Looks like a relaxing spot. Tom The Backroads Trabveller

  5. You live in a great area where they value parks and forests. They also encourage the use of these areas.

  6. Oh I would love to hike that but I probably would get lost. I can't read Dutch.

  7. Beste Marianne,
    Stray dogs zijn honden die in het wild leven... geen thuis hebben. Je bedoelt natuurlijk honden die niet aangelijnd zijn, without leash!
    Ja, mooi zo'n wandel routes. Die heb je hier in onze omgeving niet. Genoeg bossen maar niet zo speciaal aangelegd.
