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.

  • A small well-kept park where you can relax after all the busy traffic in the Center

  • A beautiful park in the city centre, with Lake, birds, trees, lawns and toys. Good to rest and get some Sun.

  • Small cozy quite nice park in the centre of the pijp area. Other than a stroll would not recommend going here on sunny days. You're either in the dog area of the park, where you are ran over by dogs, or in the student area where it is impossible to find a nice spot.
  • Nice parc for example for an afternoon walk or just a few minutes off the street. Not as crowded as some other parcs in the city but also not as spectacular.
  • Despite being small this park is a piece of art for chill out and organizing a barbecue. A must in one of the most popular areas in Amsterdam, de Pijp!
  • One of my favourite places in the world, it was nice and quiet when I was there and it was mostly locals walking round. Could sit here all day
  • Great little neighborhood park. On weekends you can experience a real neighborhood spirit - if the weather is good there will be sufficient BBQs and dogs and children and lots of picknick on the grass.
