Can you imagine that Huis Ten Bosch was originally a farmland that was reclaimed from the sea. The land was filled with sluge, so the first thing they had to do was to improve the soil quality. They dug the land, composted it, and planted carefully selected 700,000 plants. Now, there is an eco friendly, environmentally conscious theme park. The garbage from hotels and restaurants is converted to fetilizer that is used in the park, and the waste water from the park is clearler than the water in Omura Bay, which the park faces. The park depends on the solar power generation for its electric supply. Huis Ten Bosch is not mere a theme park but the town of our future.Read moreClose
