Sunday 1 December City walk Leeuwarden - Rengerspark

City walk Leeuwarden - Rengerspark

To the north of Leeuwarden city centre lies a green area of over 12 hectares. This green lung of Leeuwarden consists largely of two special parks. The oldest, over four hectares in size, was laid out as a cemetery according to a plan by landscape architect Lucas Pieters Roodbaard. The other is the Rengerspark, three and a half hectares in size and special because of its beautiful landscaping by Hendrik Copijn and the assortment of trees, shrubs and bushes.
Where better to start this walk than at the remnant of the old corpse canal, just past Noorderbrug. Walking down Spanningjaardslaan, with the early twentieth-century buildings on either side first and then, after passing Rengerslaan, seeing Rengerspark on the right, one already gets an idea of what lies beyond. A little further on is the old city cemetery.
