  • A really nice park I guess. Good for high people to chill. (please don't smoke in public, like you know not cigarettes the other one)
  • Truly one of the best parks in Amsterdam if not the best. It can be a bit too busy with tourists on warm or sunny days but not everyone sees it as a bad thing.
  • One of the (if not the) most beautiful parks in Amsterdam, even if you're surrounded by peoples you can enjoy peace and nature as if you were out of the city. Perfect for a rest during the days of summer, lying on the net grass next to the lakes' shores.
  • Absolutely beautiful park to stroll, jog, take a nap, or take photos. Just lovely!
  • Really nice park and best for biking rather that walking since the huge amount of bikers will scare you if you are on foot. Sounds like a bike autobahn :)) The trees and ponds are really nice and one could spare some hours there relaxing and enjoying the greenness.
