The founders of TopParken

The TopParken group as we know it today was founded in 2004 by Janus Bergervoet, Riekie Bergervoet, Peter Bergervoet and Wilko Becker. The company was founded at the time as a project developer and consisted of various high–quality vacation parks and accommodations in The Netherlands. Chalets were increasingly replaced by full–fledged vacation homes equipped with all modern conveniences and comfort. Due to the success of the first parks, further expansion followed soon in the Veluwe and the rest of the country. The parks are all located in unique locations surrounded by beautiful nature and the versatile landscape of The Netherlands.

The history of TopParken

In the 1970s, Janus Bergervoet noticed that more and more people were returning to the same vacation address and, therefore, started selling modern chalets to consumers. With the success of sales, the demand for permanent lots in beautiful locations with the right facilities and a pleasant ambiance also grew.

Janus soon operated several vacation parks under the name Continental Recreatie; from buying bare pieces of land in unique locations to offering fully equipped vacation parks, in line with the wishes and needs of the market. Creating a nice, special vacation experience has always been central to this.

The proud owners of TopParken

As of 2022, Janus, Riekie and Peter Bergervoet are still the proud owners & directors of TopParken. This makes TopParken one of the few vacation park providers in the recreation industry that is a real family business. Together with an ever–growing team of professionals, the organization is continuously growing and TopParken is now a leading player in the recreation industry.

TopParken as project developer

TopParken has taken over many campsites and vacation parks in recent years and revived them. The most recent example of this is Camping de Hertshoorn in Garderen. TopParken took over this campsite in 2020 and has since developed it into a luxury vacation resort.

In addition to taking over vacation parks and campsites, TopParken also resells vacation parks. For example, in 2021 TopParken sold three vacation parks on the coast: Parc du Soleil, Recreatiepark de Woudhoeve and Recreatiepark Noordwijkse Duinen. This gave the organization more room for the further development of existing and new vacation parks.
