This park makes an excellent base for exploring the province of Friesland. Many places of interest are nearby, like the historic city center of Franeker. The cozy inner city of the town, famous for being one of the eleven cities of the Elfstedentocht (a large skating event), is just a stone's throw away from the park. If you would like to explore the area from an original point of view, you can rent a canoe at the dock in the park. For cycling fans there are a number of routes like the Elfstedenroute (Eleven Cities Route). Remarkable sites in Franeker include the town hall (built in renaissance style in 1591), the Martini church, the old court yards, the famous Elfstedenbruggetje (bridge) and the old weighing house in the Voorstraat where the tourist information center is now located. The planetarium of Eise Eisinga is also a nice place to visit. It's the oldest planetarium in the world still in operation. If you would like to enjoy the Frisian waters, a boat tour on one of the Frisian lakes or a day trip to one of the islands of Terschelling or Vlieland, will make your day unforgettable. Sea fishing in Harlingen is also a very good option.
