Summer in Hilversum

After a short period of extraordinary warm and sunny weather in April, the park has erupted in various colours of green, rendering a view that will remain unchanged until the end of November. Unfortunately for our visitors, most of the park will be blocked from view by the dense foliage of trees and bushes. Bits of the football pitch and basketball court are visible, and you may catch a glimpse of locals be jogging or walking their dogs on the sandy path at the front of the picture.

Hilversum is a town with a population of 80.000, just 40 km Southeast of Amsterdam. The town is often called "media city", since it is the principal centre for radio and television broadcasting in The Netherland. The webcam above faces East side of the Zeverijn Park, which originates from the days when the Gooi region was still densely wooded. Centuries ago, it bordered on vast marshes, extending from the town of Loosdrecht through ’s-Graveland, all the way to Naarden. Later, properties were bought and cultivated by rich gentry (mostly from Amsterdam but also from as far away as Germany), who built large country estates on them. In those days, the Zeverijn Park was part of the Birkenheuvel estate. Today it is a public leisure park, including a children's playground, soccer field and (sadly enough) even a snackbar. All these are only visible in the winter when the trees have lost their leaves.
