This photo was posted by me but was not made by me! This beautiful photo was sent to me by my daughter, Sarah. It nicely reflects the Friday atmosphere, a nice calm day, the prelude to the weekend! Picture taken in the Kralingse Bos. The Kralingse Bos was designed in 1921 by the architect Marinus Jan Granpré Molière. The planting of oaks, specially grown in North Brabant, started in 1928. A large proportion of these trees are burned in the stove during the very cold winter of 1944/1945. The many debris from the center of the bombed city is dumped in the southern corner of the Plas. This creates a group of small islands, which are connected to a series of small bridges for walkers. The Kralingse Bos was finally officially opened in 1953.
