Navigation system address: 201 Harwichweg, Hoek van Holland. This is the address for the ‘De Hoek’ tennis park. Parking is free. Once you are parked, if the tennis club is to your back, take the cycle path to your right to start your round.
Cannot spot any on the map, and did not see any in person. Perhaps the tennis club serves refreshments? To be researched further.
The locals swear that the entire area (except for the graveyard) is offleash. This seems to be corroborated by the sign posts that I have seen.
What is so special about it?
You shall mainly dune vegetation, including old conifers and a couple of grass clearings.
If you have time, you can always pay a visit to the bird rescue centre ‘de Houtsnip‘ (dogs not allowed, though).
There is a ‘dog field’, granting you the opportunity for the usual convivial conversations with other dog owners, and your dog the chance to have a romp with fellow four-leggers.
Watch out for
The area is rather small, and most of it is taken by the sports fields.
