The Sarphatipark is a public urban park located in the stadsdeel Amsterdam Oud-Zuid in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The park is named after Samuel Sarphati.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.

  • Visited this park when there was so much green in the eyes, really loved it this period. You can buy some local food from the flee market Albert Cuypmarkt and have a nice picnic time in the park.  more »
  • The park is nicely located, very good place to go for a walk on a sunny day. Unfortunately it is quite poorly maintained. The benches are old and dirty. On rainy days there is lots of mud on the trail...  more »
  • ... with interesting modern sculptures dotted around the place and nice paths winding around the lake. Also good for a shortcut if you are walking to central Amsterdam from a hotel on Linnaeusstraat.  more »

  • Great place to relax. The park has a fitness area, basketball court, and small soccer (football) area. In the middle are wading ponds and lots of places to have a picnic. I love playing basketball there in the summer.
  • A lovely park in the heart of the city. Less touristic than Vondelpark and suitable for families. It's ideal for reading, playing sports and chilling when sunny.
  • In my opinion the nicest park in Amsterdam. Has an old-fashioned cozy atmosphere. A quiet place in the middle of the Pijp, a neighborhood with dozens of nice cafes and restaurants. Nearby the famous Albert Cuyp market.
  • Simply charming! A good place to go for a run or just chill with a book. There's even a play area for kids.
  • Wow, in the middle of the city and pitch-dark at night: no lampposts! I love it, but I can imagine it's a bit scary for women. During the day: a nice place to watch people, but too crowded for me. And I would never lie in the grass because of all the dogs.
