Area of natural beauty

Isabelle Greend and Oolder Greend

Southwest of the village of Ool is the Oolder Lake, created by gravel extraction. Together with the Oolder Griend and the Isabelle Griend, the total area is 263 ha. Koniks and galloways graze on the headlands, creating a structure-rich vegetation.

Both areas are freely accessible to pedestrians. Dogs are not allowed due to grazing management.

Quiet water recreation (sailing, surfing, quiet motor boating) is allowed on the Oolderplas, with jetties available for temporary stays. The water, partly because of blue-green algae, is not suitable for swimming.

The immense body of water is the first thing that stands out about the Oolderplas. It is up to 32 m deep and hardly any vegetation occurs in it. Its great natural value is achieved by the large numbers of water birds that winter there.

These birds look for food at night and sleep during the day. Sometimes the area is visited by seabirds. Polar divers, red-throated divers and sometimes large numbers of cormorants are strongly attracted to the large body of water and their arrival indicates that there are plenty of fish in the water.

The waterbirds mostly stay in our country from November to March. During the summer months, a lot of water recreation takes place at Oolderplas. As the recreational and wintering periods do not overlap, recreation and nature go hand in hand at the Oolderplas.

The Oolder Griend and the Isabelle Griend mainly consist of all kinds of grassland with scattered bushes and water features. Galloways graze on the Oolder Griend from April to winter. As there is no safe high-water refuge for the animals, they are taken to higher grounds (mostly Exaten Estate) for part of the winter. On the Isabelle Griend, galloways and koniks walk all year round.
