istory
During the French occupation between 1810 and 1814, it was the capital of a canton in the French department Zuiderzee and until 1964, the municipality of Amstelveen was called "Nieuwer-Amstel". It is "technically a large "dorp" (village), due to the fact that it is not and was not walled. The symbol adopted for Amstelveen was based on the Amsterdam symbol of three crosses, with one additional cross for distinction. The Thijssepark (in full the Dr Jac. P. Thijssepark), was the first heempark in the Netherlands and is one of sixteen heemparks or heemgroen in Amstelveen. Designed by landscape architect C.P.Broerse; following the ideas of the great Dutch naturalist and conservationist Jac. P. Thijsse, it was developed between 1940 and 1972 and covers an area of 5 hectares, and is situated just south of the Amsterdamse Bos. Amstelveen was chosen as an unlikely host of a match in the 1999 Cricket World Cup, for which the Netherlands had not qualified. South Africa played Kenya in the match. Dutch prime minister Jan Peter Balkenende started his political career as member of the council for Amstelveen. The Nihon Ki-in established its European Go and Cultural Centre in Amstelveen.
