  • A wonderful place to hike and take a break from the hustle and bustle of the world. Ponds, streams, hills and valleys. Enjoy the sunset on the terrace or in the Conservatory of the White City villa on the Hill; of the deer camp; the steep garden with touchable sculptures and special native plants and herbs; of the concerts and performances in the round Wei; the Sonsbeek Avenue summer Sundays with stalls and attractions. There are nice places to eat: except for the white Villa you can also go to the Palatine Hill, the farm or the Wok-Chinese. There the Water museum, unique in Netherlands, and Zypendaal park, where you can visit the Castle. When the weather is nice, you imagine yourself in a painting of the Impressionists: "Le déjeuner sur l'Herbe ', where groups of people sit to enjoy a picnic and from each other.

  • Remains a very nice park, we live here 10 min walk away and there are often found. Nature is so beautiful, the waterfall fantastic and in summer you should just take a doily and some food. Around dinner time you see, on a beautiful summer day, so many people and there is so much activity. There you have to enjoy it.

  • On a beautiful summer evening with friends and a picnic basket find a place on the big lawn. If you do your eyes, the warmth of the setting sun on your skin feels, are you really get away just like in Paris in the gardens of the Louvre.

  • Beautiful park with a small waterfall. Lovely to walk in and don't forget to see the deer
  • It's big and there is a lot see. There are also small dinner and cafés through out the park. It's a great place for walks or just relaxing in the sun.
  • HOW BEAUTIFUL 😍 I had a wonderful time there, little hiking and making lots of pictures. There is also a water museum (paid) and cafeterias as well as restaurant. Perfect for weekend picnic on sunny day.
  • Perfect for a walk through the nature although it gets very cold during the winter.
  • Beautiful and clear park with quite some height differences, which is unique for this part of the Netherlands. During summertime, each Sunday free outdoor concerts. Super relaxed atmosphere. The park has an extraordinary waterfall. You can walk under it! Last but not least there's the water-museum including a real water wheel.
