History

Around the year 1960 a large lake arose between the cities of Tilburg and Hilvarenbeek because of a large sand extraction. After a few years the zoo Lion Park Beekse Bergen was opened next to the lake. At the same time another park opened its doors at the other side of the lake: Speelland Beekse Bergen. Later the zoo received a new name, which remained the same ever since: Safaripark Beekse Bergen. When translated into English, Speelland means Playland.

In the beginning Speelland mainly aimed at summer recreation. Later this park was enlarged with different playgrounds and attractions, which made the park more of a small attraction park than a playground or recreation lake. Due to privatization Speelland is a part of the company Libéma since 1987.

Park

Speelland mainly focusses on families with children until the age of 12. Most attractions are therefore aim at this target group. The park has a low amount of trees, but there are quite some plants and gardens throughout the park. A large part of the park is filled by a sand beach.
