  • Beautiful spot of greenery in the midst of the city. Lovely lakes and features. Great to walk around or to sit down and take in the scenery. Perfect for a picnic on a warm day. Wide obvious paths and lovely ducks about in the water too.
  • Best park to go if you are around the center of Amsterdam. Great variety of animals, long paths for bikes to ride in the nature. Plenty of nice spots to sit and enjoy the surroundings. Also great lives during summer weekends with plenty of people until evening. Absolutely a must go if you happen to be in Amsterdam.
