Location: Boland Dam

BOLAND DAM in Vierlanden

We drive past this spot almost every day on route to school in the mornings, and every time we go past I think to myself we must come check it out. Today was that day.


What stood out for me was this:

  • 2 enormous intricate jungle gyms that keep busy bodies moving, even I wanted to get on and have a go.

  • A dam, any body of water in our family absolutely needs to be inspected for fishing opportunities. This apparently is something hereditary, anglers blood.

I always have a few fishing rods and tackle box ready in the car anyway. Read my blog "TIPS FOR EVERYDAY ADVENTURE".

Upon inspection of our app Fishing Spots, I saw that there have been catches here previously - Common Carp mostly but I didn't seem to see any sign noting that Fishing is prohibited. So as soon as the weather permits we will heading back to see what luck brings us.

Some other things I thought were pretty cool;

  • It is also a pet-friendly park with some strict rules about dogs, so for those who have furry friends, definitely take them along...

  • The park is completely enclosed with fencing, so I know my children aren't going to run off into the sunset / storm in todays case. (not that a fence would generally stop my wild kids in any essence)

  • There's big shady spots so you can picnic too, which we also plan to do in future.

  • There are foot paths for the less adventurous people. - See my blog "
