A lovely park with many different viewing points and benches. Luckily the weather was kind during my visit which made the setting even more fabulous. Well worth the visit for a quiet walk.

I visited this park last summer. Indeed it is a nice and beautiful park. Do not expect a big park as it is a small one. In a nice summer day you can do picnic and enjoy the sun there. I am recommending this park to anyone who would like to have a nice time with a beautiful scene.

Nice Parc with a great history ! Wonderful trees and great views to the river the Waal and the Waal Bridge. once there was an enormous castle at this place, the chapel is left ... If you want to work on your fitness .... there are plenty of stairs ... a real challenge.

Nice settings and a lovely atmosphere. The park has different areas what makes it very "exciting" to walk trough the park.

We stopped to view the park on our way to the Velo Museum. When we entered the chapel a woman who worked there offered to describe the building and its history for us in English. What a gift to us. The music playing and the light inside through the beautiful windows all added to the amazing time we spent in... More

very old medieval building in park with nice view over te river waal. Is nice but not top. Entrance is free but it is not always open. It is near the centre of the city so just check if its open. you can visit it for about 15 min.
