THE NETHERLANDS – This is an evening walk in the Segbroek district of The Hague, I walked through “bomen and bloemenbuurt” (the trees and flower neighborhood) and through the “fruitbuurt” (fruit neighborhood). On the way back I walked where once the German army during world war II built the Atlantic Wall.
For some time now, I had the idea to walk from where I live towards the “Bosjes van Pex” (bushes of Pex). I know most of the parks in my area by now, but I only have vague memories of this park from when I was a child, even though it is actually very close to where I live.
When I got to the park named “bosjes van pex”, it turned out why I couldn’t remember much about it. The route to the park was more impressive than the park itself. The park exists mostly of sport fields and playground. So, funny enough, I only took 1 photo in the bushes of Pex itself during this hike.
On my way to the “bosjes van pex” park, I took pictures in the “bomen en bloemenbuurt” (trees and flower-district) and “fruitbuurt” (fruit district), 2 neighborhoods that are located in the segbroek district in the hague and were built between 1910 and 1925.
After the bushes of Pex I walked on the Segbroeklaan, towards the Valkenboskade. During the German occupation in world war II (1940-1945), part of the district was demolished by the Germans to make way for the Atlantic Wall against a possible Allied invasion. The Segbroeklaan was later built on the site of those defenses, as were a number of housing blocks.
