To turn the market square into Square of the City means: a place for everyone, in true Apeldoorn fashion. The beating heart of the city that makes your heart beat faster.
A sheltered and green square with space for a (farmer’s)market, the occasional party event, and ample activity at market-free-days! Where you can comfortably sit and work among the flowers, have a drink at the terraces under the trees, splash in the fountain, climb on the boulders and play at the swings in the Huuske-construction. How to prepare this local recipe? Six local ingredients together make the new square: an enlarged roof-construction of the Apeldoorn House; lush green framing the place; gravel verges related to the historical quarries; wells and water streams connecting Veluwe and Ijssel, straight through town; royal gardens inspired by the Palace Het Loo; and naturally the people of Apeldoorn, activating it all. Welcome to the Square of the City!
