  • Really lovely park right in the middle of Amsterdam. Lots of things to see and do as well as places to just relax. Would be a great place when the sun is out.
  • One of the best parks ever. Nice to sit, relax and not care about the rest of the world. You can find quite, cozy place where no one will bother you, or stay near the crow and look at tourists, bikers, and swans and feel the light-side of Amsterdam.
  • An amazing park very clean and with a lot of beautiful birds. We have walked it and we needed two hours to do so. We came form Greece and I was so jealous of this beautiful place to go for a walk, to relax.
  • Beautiful place to while away those long and lazy summer afternoons. It can get very busy but you’ll be able to find a nice spot if you take the time to look around.
  • A joyous place to be come spring/summer/autumn or winter. The colours of the beautiful flowers Ducks with there ducklings & everything else in between. Somewhere to relax in the heart of the city.
