Forest park "Reestervallei" is situated in the most northern part of the province of Overijssel and is being coloured by the forest, which is bordering the park. Besides, at a distance of three kilometres the play- pond "The black Firtrees" with a beautiful sandy beach, sun-bathing areas and a children's play-ground is situated.
Because the play-pond is slowly going down, it's ideal for children . The holiday park, which derives its name from the ancient peet-river "De Reest", is an ideal operating base for those who want to explore the province of Drenthe in the north or the nature-reservate the "Veluwe" in the south.
