In 1942, the park was renamed "Bollandpark" after G.J.P.J. Bolland, because Samuel Sarphati was a Jew. The old name was restored after the war in 1945.
The Dutch painter Mommie Schwarz and his wife Else Berg lived adjacent to the park from 1927 until their deportation to, and execution at, the Auschwitz concentration camp in 1942. Some of their last works were landscape paintings of the park.

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.
