The recreation area has a rich history, which can be found in every type of element. Spaarnwoude, as we know it today, has its origins in the 1960s. The aim was to create more recreational areas so that nature can also manifest. At that time, Haarlem and Amsterdam became increasingly densely populated. As a result, the need for entertainment outside the city grew, and there was more demand for a place to recreate. As a result, an open polder of 3000 hectares was chosen between Amsterdam and Zuid-Kennemerland and was named 'Spaarnwoude.' This is named after the village nearby.
