The *Forest of Haarlem (Haarlemmer Hout), to the S. of the
Pavilion, is a beautiful park laid out since 1827 in an ancient wood,
with fine old beech and lime tree avenues (e.g. the Spanjaards
Laan). At the entrance is the Buiten-Societeit (a club) and a Deer
Park. Concerts on Sun., 2.30-4, and on Wed. & Frid., 8-40 p.m.
The Environs of Haarlem are attractive, particularly the E.
slopes of the dunes (p. 314; many pretty country-houses). The fol-
lowing excursion may be made on foot in 3-41/5 hrs. (there and back)
from Overveen or from Bloemendaal. Carriages (carr. 4-5 f1.), which
quit Haarlem via the Zylweg (Pl. B, A, 3, 2), take nearly as long.
