The Bentwoud forms another green border of Zoetermeer. It is a new nature reserve that is in full development. In 2000, the first trees for this forest were planted and the wetlands were established. A special forest is slowly developing here where visitors can stroll around and spot birds. The public golf course and the children's tree forest, a symbol of new life, are certainly worth a visit.

This route takes you through Waddinxveen and Moerkapelle along the Rottemeren. Via Bergschenhoek and Pijnacker you will return to Zoetermeer.

The ancient river Rotte forms the backbone of the Rottemeren recreation area. Due to subsidence and peat bogging of the area, the Rotte and the Rottemeren are a lot higher than the surrounding polders. See http://www. Heerlijkbuiten.nl
