Feel like getting away from the busieness? Go to the Westbroekpark and feel the peace and quietness around you. This large park of 18 hectares is located not far away from the beach and easily reached. When the weather is nice many youngsters and families come to Westbroekpark to enjoy a game of soccer and a picnic. The colourful rose garden is one of the park's highlights, as is the romantic tearoom where you can enjoy high tea or rent a rowing boat. Children can play for hours on the playing field.
The center piece of the Westbroekpark is the rose garden. Every year (June - October) more then 20.000 different roses are blooming here. The best rose growers in the world send their special rose type to this park. Each year an expert jury judges all the different types. Only the most beautiful kinds end up in the garden. From these roses the jury rewards the best with the ‘Golden Rose’ awards, the most prestigious price a rose grower can win.
