Petting zoo & playground

There’s lots to see and do at the ‘De kleine Carrousel’ play farm and petting zoo. There are around 160 animals roaming around, there’s a maze and you can play on the roundabout and jump on a bouncy cushion.  

“Which animal will you spot first; the kangaroo or the alpaca?”

There’s no shortage of activities at ‘De kleine Carrousel’, where you can meet goats, sheep, peacocks, alpacas and even kangaroos.

The animals aren’t the only attraction though. There are also fun and challenging play opportunities, such as a building corner and a balancing course that make this a popular place for children. If you want to take part in group activities, there’s ‘klootschieten’ (Dutch bowling sport), farmer golf, treasure hunts, portrait painting, etc. 

Hey, did you know?

The thickest giant sequoia in the Netherlands stands on Stationsweg in Laren. Its trunk is 6.65 metres in circumference.
