Walk from Deventer to Rijsterborgherpark & Vogeleiland
Length: 3.,07 km, option to extend to 4.8 km
Want to go for a walk in Deventer? This route starts at the building of Saxion Hogeschool, located next to the central station of Deventer. Here you will find the necessary facilities such as a toilet, assembly points and an aid station. From the Saxion building you walk in the direction of the station next to the park.
Central to this route is the Rijsterborgher Park. The park consists of partially landscaped nature and has large open grassy areas that can be used for outdoor activities such as picnics or yoga. The paths are paved and there are height differences in the paths, making activities like inline skating or skateboarding not only good but also fun to do. If you want to walk an extra lap, there is always the option of walking route 2 in addition to route 1.
Route 2 is based entirely on the Bird Island, which is located next to the park. Here there is opportunity to spot special birds and relax with a cup of coffee or tea in the park café. After walking the route you can decide to go back to the Saxion building or quickly take the next train or bus at the station.
During the route you have the opportunity to do activities: you can help in a vegetable garden, you can participate in the Happy Stones activity or you can sow flower seeds (we can send the seeds to you).
Listen to our podcast during your walk. That way you relax and learn something in the meantime!
