Pretpark de Valkenier is an amusement park located in Valkenburg, Limburg, the Netherlands. The park focuses on families with young children.
The park was opened in 1934 as Ontspanningsoord Natuurbad Valkenburg by Jan Albert Otermans, with a playground, restaurant and an outdoor swimming pool. Through the years attractions were added which lead to a new name: Pretpark de Valkenier.
Pretpark de Valkenier is located in Valkenburg, and thus is surrounded by housing. This has lead to problems when expanding the park, and is the reason why the attractions are built close to each other.
Early 2021 the park managers said they were considering closing the park, as they couldn't expand and needed a lot more visitors in order to invest in a new location.
In July 2021 a large flood in parts of Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands hit the park and left rides and electrical systems damaged. This, together with possibly contaminated sludge, meant that the park couldn't open after measurements against Covid-19 were eased up.
