Heading for Autumn

After a reasonably normal Summer, with a pretty warm month of September, the park is now heading for its Autumn colors. Autumn seems to be coming later every year now, so don’t expect the leaves to start falling intil mid November. From then on, visitors may enjoy a clear view of most of the park, with its playground end hilly part in the distance.

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.
