You will find the 18-acre Kettingbrug play forest behind the fishpond. The forest was opened in 1972, complete with an arboretum and hiking trails. At this time a bridge, benches and tables were put in place. And what's more, thousands of young trees were planted. A sandbox, crawl tubes, shelter huts and climbing frame were added for children. Over the years, the arboretum has grown into a fully-fledged forest. In 2012 work began on redesigning the playground.
