The ancient Vallander is an 18th-century park in the south of the Tilburg-Breda railway line, between the University of Tilburg and the city of Reshoff. The park, commissioned by willem viii in 1712, is one of the few complete star forests in the Netherlands. The Forest of Stars is so named because from a central point, many avenues, usually six or eight, flow to its corners and outer edges. The old warande had eight star wheels and four rings along the edges, encircling a square of about seventy hectares. The park is built in Baroque style, with the design of garden architect Andr é len ô tre as an example. This is reflected in the symmetrical rectangular edge pattern, which comes from a small central image boundary. In the 1980s, only the main features remained. After nearly 20 years of renovation, it was completed in 2008. Old grasslands were restored, trees were cut down, sandy ponds were dug deep, and paths were cleared.
