  • This park is beautiful and open. Great for a morning walk or to walk off the lunch. Highly recommend it to everyone traveling to Amsterdam.
  • It is a busy park with all walks and cycles of life passing by. Favourite thing was being with my partner and people watching. Including the woman who was kitted out entirely in knitting and crochet, and the bike with the dog carrier.
