Strand Horst at the Veluwe Lake is at a half kilometer walking or cycling distance from the park. The lake is one of the best places to surf in the Netherlands. The shallow water makes this place popular with (kite) surfers. You or your (grand) children can sunbathe on the expansive beaches of Strand Horst and you can also go swimming. In the Strand Horst Marina you can moor your boat, rent a boat or surfing equipment, and you can even book surfing lessons. There is also pizza, a wok and McDonald's restaurant.
The park borders the foothills of the Veluwe massif. This allows you to go biking or hiking in the forest park. In the forest park there is also a petting zoo and forest passes into the Veluwe massif. You can get from the park to the largest continuous forest in the Netherlands and cycle to Arnhem (58 km).
The authentic Hanseatic city of Harderwijk is within cycling distance of the park. The promenade, many restaurants, not to mention the Dolphinarium here are amazing. The Veluwe farms are a great base for a trip to Amsterdam, Apeldoorn, Arnhem, Amersfoort and Utrecht.
There are more than enough things to do for the young people in this area too, things that will get their interest. Consider the Dolfinarium in Harderwijk, the Apenheul in Apeldoorn, Walibi in Biddinghuizen, the Aviodrome, Batavia Yard and the Batavia outlet center in Lelystad, the amusement park “Country of Jan Klaassen” in Braamt, or the Ouwehand Zoo in Rhenen.
