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.

    Beautiful English landscape park. Unfortunately not everybody realizes enough how special this old beautiful little park is and what an important role it plays in a densely built neighborhood with little green. That is why I am calling on everyone with care to deal with this park, not to pollute or to venielen. And do not climb over the fence of the fountain. This fountain is a national monument and is just before, 120,000-refurbished. But despite that it is sandstone become brittle after more than 100 years. If you insist on runs or climbs it can easily break. Dangerous to yourself and very sin of the beautiful old fountain. Finally, a request to the municipality to better lighting in the fountain, especially on the image of Samuel Sarphati. That State now at night in the dark.

    The Sarphatipark is a fun park in the middle of the city. A cosy place to take to break free from the hustle and bustle of the city. Well maintained.

    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.
