The vegetation and paths will be removed in Westduinpark and nature will be given the opportunity to recover.  In the Bosjes van Poot the municipality will begin with a small-scale approach to the footpaths and recovery of nature.

The most important changes

  • In the Bosjes van Poot the footpaths will be restored in the low-lying part of this dune area on the Laan van Poot. The playground will also be completely updated.
  • In Westduinpark the former Wieringsepad will be connected to the nature path through the seawall on the footpaths of the transmitter conglomerate (Zenderpark).
  • In the part called ‘De Plak’ several paved paths will be eliminated and a number of non-native plant species in dune area will be removed.
  • Bushes by beach access point 9 and along the Baden Powellweg will be cut back in order to improve the safety and visibility around the footpaths.
  • The Fuutpad footpath will be paved. This will improve the accessibility of beach access point 9 and De Kwartel beach restaurant.
