Inspiration for the Van Woelderen Park
The realisation of a park is often the result of the creative force of architects who have a special experience and knowledge of nature and landscape. It is astounding when these architects have the gift of foresight when looking at the future. These sculptors of greenery have a clear and obvious view of the surroundings. What is growing and flowering in the vicinity they combine with an understanding of history, architecture and space availability. Just like a Michelangelo in sculpture, a Beethoven in music and a van Gogh in painting they are looking for challenges not knowing that they would be leaving inspiring breakthroughs for the coming generations.
As a nature lover, C.A. Van Woelderen had awe and had personally experienced parks in large, fashionable cities.
