'Tuinen van West' is the new nature, urban agriculture and recreational area that the Amsterdam Nieuw-West district is developing between the urban areas of the Nieuw-West and Halfweg districts. It is not yet completely finished. But you can already walk, cycle, picnic, get fresh vegetables, buy special beers and sit on the terrace. Children can enjoy themselves in the nature playground between the Picnic Hills in the Osdorperbinnenpolder Noord. Tuinen van West is located between the Haarlemmerweg, Halfweg, Ringvaart Haarlemmermeer, Lutkemeerweg and the Ookmeerweg. It is crossed by the Osdorperweg. The area is approximately 400 hectares and consists of four polders. The Osdorperbovenpolder (created around 1570) - the oldest polder is in the middle of the Gardens of West. There are 21 different animals in the open area, including many wintering birds. The Osdorperbinnenpolder Noord (created around 1631) - is the area north of the Osdorperweg. Sportpark De Eendracht, arable lands and allotments are located in this polder. Many different bird species live in the latter in particular. The Osdorperbinnenpolder Zuid (created around 1631) - is the area south of the Osdorperweg. In this polder you can still see the beautiful old medieval subdivision. The polder is also an ideal place for breeding birds and a resting place for migratory birds. The Lutkemeer polder (created around 1865) - a polder with multiple faces. Here you will find Uitvaartpark Westgaarde, but also nature areas that were first delivered a few years ago in the Gardens of West. A business park is also being constructed in the Lutkemeer polder (Business Park Amsterdam Osdorp), this is not part of the Gardens of West. Fortunately, the latter does not work so well. Of course you cannot avoid traffic noise. Depending on the wind direction you notice whether the Zwanenburgbaan or Polderbaan of Schiphol is open. The planes sometimes fly low. But you will surely enjoy a surprising amount of greenery so close to Amsterdam. You start at the fairly new station Halfweg Zwanenburg and you pass the former sugar factory. There are plans to give the buildings on the former site of the sugar factory in Halfweg, which was closed in 1992, a new function. The old sugar silos have already been transformed into beautiful buildings with aluminum facades with diamond-shaped recesses. The offices in it are popular in the fashion, design and art sectors. You walk over the Bietenbrug. The name Bietenbrug was chosen from the names that villagers could give up. Many people will always remember the sky in the autumn - when the factory processed sugar beet again - always. The building on the Ringvaart of the Haarlemmermeerpolder with the high chimney is the oldest and largest still-rotating paddle-pumping station in the world. It was built in 1852 and served as a pumping station to pump the excess water to the sea. After a major restoration, it has been running again for 10-12 days a year since 1987. In the Lutkemeer polder you can see De Lynden pumping station across the Ringvaart. This is named after Frans Godard, baron van Lynden van Hemmen. Together with two other pumping stations, the pumping station was responsible for the reclamation of the Haarlemmermeer. The old pumping station was commissioned in 1849 and has since been modernized several times. It was decommissioned in 2005. There is a new pumping station next to it.
