  • If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city go to this beautiful tranquil park. A lot of people sitting on the grass having a drink and a chat. There is a lake, a rose garden, a caffeteria...  more »
  • Very nice and cared for, definitely a very relaxing, between characteristic plants, large lawns and ponds, a great place to go to look for a bit of quiet or just to drink a beer or take a walk.

  • It looks like a very pleasant park, a green space within Amsterdam that's not along a canal. We were there at 7:30pm and the drunks and druggies were just arriving so best go earlier in the day.
  • Probably the busiest park in center Amsterdam. Beautiful but can be trashed sometimes, in summer often there are events.
