1. Oude Warande
The Oude Warande is an 18th-century park, located south of Spoorlijn Tilburg-Breda, between Tilburg University and Reeshof Station. The park was constructed in 1712 on behalf of William VIII van Hessen-Kassel and is one of the few intact star forests in the Netherlands. A star forest is so called because a number of avenues, usually six or eight, walk to the corners and the outer edges from a central point. The Oude Warande has eight sterlanes, and four avenues run along the edges that enclose a square of about seventy hectares. The park is laid out in baroque style, where the designs of landscape architect André Le Nôtre served as an example. This is reflected in the symmetrical, rectangular avenue pattern from a small central sculpture. In the 1980s, only the main lines of this setup could still be seen. This was followed by an almost twenty -year renovation that was completed in 2008. The old avenues were restored, sick trees were cleared, deepened the sailed pond and 'wild' paths removed.
Het Wandelbos is a city park in Tilburg West.
