  • Not a bad park to get away from city and main street noise. But it's a bit unkempt as well as a few homeless out and about, and I could see most parents keeping a wary eye for their children (from what my wife and I could see they were locals). However, not a bad place to take a quick break and enjoy the wonderful bees, flowers and architecture of the neighborhood.
  • One of my favorite Amsterdam parks. There’s a nice place nearby with an awesome selection of beers to take away. On one side of the park you can bring your 🐶 to play.
