Added by J. Vreekamp

Description

The Kievitsveld consists of ponds, beaches, some former fishing ponds and small forest complexes. The several ponds (Smallertse plas and Nijmolense plas) were created by sand extraction. The sand was used for the construction of the A50 highway between Apeldoorn and Heerde. The Smallertse plas was set up for day recreation with the construction of 2 beaches. South of the Nijmolense plas are some water features that were formerly used as fish ponds. A beautiful natural environment has been created here. This area is nice for birding and to walk around.
