Rana Natuurpark / Het Groene Kikkertje Dreischor Reviews
Rana Gardens, for everyone who loves wild gardens Aug 23, 2008
I'm absolutely not the gardening type, but my mom is mad about gardening, so I sometimes join her here. I thought it was fun to put a review here, since it's probably the only one of its kind ;)
10 years ago the owner of this garden center (called 'Het Groene Kikkertje' or 'The Green Frog') which specializes in wild plants (many indigenous to the Netherlands) decided to create wild gardens from a 1 hectare large field. Nowadays it's called Rana Natuurpark. It shows some gardens without straight lines and concrete tiles, but with loads of wild growing plants and lots of water.
Although I think the gardens need some more care and maintenance now, it's still nice to see how a field became these gardens in 10 years, complete with large trees, ponds filled with frogs, lizards and turtles and all kinds of flowers.
Entrance: €2,50, but you can easily walk in without getting a ticket. if you do have one, the ticket will give you a €2,50 discount on anything you buy at the gardencenter.
