For many years now, Amsterdammers have been able to play endlessly in Jeugdland, the largest adventure playground and children’s workshop in Amsterdam. Sunday 19 September we celebrate the transition to autumn with the harvest festival. There are all kinds of fun activities. And you can admire the new Heavenly Garden, which is also suitable for children with disabilities.
The Heavenly Garden is a large green oasis with many different edible crops: vegetables, herbs, grain, forest fruits and flowers. There are also a lot of young trees, a pond and an apiary. An adventurous barefoot and senses path meanders through the garden next to the paved path. In the new garden, children can play outside, do and learn from nature even more. Or relax in the hammocks under the chestnut tree. The Hemelse Tuin is wheelchair accessible and therefore a place for all Amsterdammers, with and without a real disability.
Sunday, September 19, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., there will be a small festival around the Heavenly Garden with all kinds of activities. Children can make cooking pears and flower crowns, shoot an apple with a bow like Robin Hood or go out with the beekeepers. The harvest from the garden is for sale. Admission is free, registration is not necessary.
Of course the corona rules will become rules and activities may be full. Check the website just in advance.
