Yes indeed. English landscape style: hills, meadows, woods, a waterfall and sort of cave. Lots to see and do. There a regular concerts on a raft. There is a visitor centre, museum and a few restaurants. And to see: deer, kingfisher and other more common birds. Please don't forget Park Zypendaal which is situated right at the back of Sonsbeek.... More

Sonsbeek is great! It's beautiful to walk around in, sit on the grass or one of the many benches and in the summer chill with some drinks and food! There's also some stuff going on on sundays, live music, markets, fun stuff for kids!

Its one of the green fingers in Arnhem reaching far into the town. its a nice place to sit, to stroll to go walking and all other activities or non-activities there is a lot of water with a big and a small fall. in winter you can go skating and you can visit "the lazy King"

It's lovely Forestpark in the city... Perfect place for morning jogging, walk during a day while watch in birds, deers or even for dining in as there are few place to choose from while enjoying this beautiful nature and lakes around.

Sonsbeek is one of those parks you can visit every day because it seems to look different each day. Apart from the beautiful old trees, and flowering shrubs, there is the lake, the waterfall, the deer park, the bridge with the swan heads and the gorgeous white house - just to name a few things. If you get hungry, there... More

Park within easy reach of Arnhem station, there are nice walks, either on the level or there are more hilly walks. Some nice art works visible, nice ponds, a water play area for kids, and a few places for coffee etc. Worth a visit!

This park is the perfect place for a leisurely stroll to forget all about the troubles of daily life. There is a lot of this park and it takes a while to walk through it all. It's beautifully constructed with many bushes and benches to sit down. The trees provide shadow in summer, and if you like sun you can... More
