It was used to grow vegetables for the court. The garden was surrounded by a ring of canals and intersected by ditches.As a town square, Het Plein was constructed in 1632 and was inspired by the Place des Vosges in Paris.A statue of William the Silent, made by Dutch sculptor Lodewyk Royer, was installed in the centre of the square in 1848

A fine image of "The Square" the figure on the shaded bench plus the one out in the center really adds life.
