Spookjespad bij de Spokedam

Spookjespad trail at the Spokedam

Experience trail

The Spookjespad is a nature and discovery trail around the Spokeplas for children from the age of 4 to 8. There are wooden statues along the route and each statue has an assignment. The aim of the assignments is to introduce children to the nature around us in a playful way.

The 1.5 kilometer route starts with the ghost at the beginning of the Spokedam, which is indicated by ghosts on the trees - sometimes the ghosts are a little hidden, making it a treasure hunt. The assignments are explained with the images. To make the route and assignments even more fun, a bag can be purchased at the reception containing among other things, the assignments, a magnifying glass, mirror and a search card for insects and trees.
