This lovely villa park, named after its initiator Thomas van Stolk, came into being at the end of the 19th century. It lies on the dunes side of the seat of government that is The Hague, on the historical route to the bathing resort of Scheveningen..
Van Stolkpark was created by the landscape architect Jan David Zocher, who designed it alongside his son Louis Paul Zocher in a style that was regarded as quite innovative for that period. It embodied a loose translation of the organic forms from the surrounding landscape, featuring harmonious movements and differences in height.
With the countless historical villas and monuments built along Duinweg and the other broad lanes that meander through the hilly park, Van Stolkpark as a whole has been designated a nationally protected townscape.
