Zandenplas Nunspeet: Free kid’s day-out

Zandenplas Nunspeet is a free recreation area for swimming in the region of Gelderland Netherland. This place is located in the middle of the forest of Veluwe, a beautiful nature area that expands to various cities and municipalities of The Netherlands. Zandenplas Nunspeet has a fine sand and offers various children and adult activities that make it ideal for a day-out. Since the summer is approaching again in The Netherlands and many are looking for a place to swim and relax, I highly recommend this place. As compared to the expensive prices of hotels and accommodations in beaches, islands, or even in vacation parks during summer in The Netherlands, Zandenplas Nunspeet offers free swimming to family with kids. If you even want to make your outing more affordable, you may bring your own food and camp during the day. In this blog I will tour you around the place and discuss what you can do when with children in Zandenplas Nunspeet.
