Het boek laat in al zijn details de essenties zien van deze publieke parken nabij het Amsterdamse Bos. Het uniek gebruik van wilde planten in een stedelijke omgeving vormt hier de opmaat naar de hedendaagse ontwikkelingen van het fenomeen `wild gardening`.

The heem parks De Braak, the K. Landwehrpark and, especially, the Jac.P. Thijssepark in Amstelveen in the Netherlands have been important sources of inspiration for landscape architects, gardeners, and nature lovers throughout the world since they were laid out over 70 years ago. This book looks at the extraordinary history of the use of native, wild plants in public parks and the visions they reflect of the landscape architect Christiaan Broerse and his colleague the botanist Koos Landwehr. This publication deals with drawings, new photography and historical details explained in their urban context as a suburban village near the Amsterdam Bospark.
