  • It's a well laid out, large park that you can wander around freely for a long time if you choose. We racked up 21k steps the day we wandered around it (not just in the park).

  • Very nice, quiet place to just relax. You could also ride a bike, skateboard, inline skates, or other devices, of which there were many. You could also just watch the birds or sit next to the ponds...

  • A lovely quiet area of Amsterdam. We cycled around the park and the areas are clearly marked. There’s a free drinking water station, an area for kids to play in a wet area to cool off.
  • Pretty cool park to check out, but don 5 expect to have a zen time there! The park is pretty crowded with locals and tourists as well. Still, you should be able to find a calm spot and enjoy the greenery around.
