“Perfect Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

What a lovely surprise this is in the heart of such a busy city. It is such a fantastic amenity for the people of Amsterdam and they most certainly use it either walking running or cycling. I would love to see how nice this would be in the middle of summer. With the surrounding buildings it looks very like central park in New York. There are 3.5kms of walking trail so don't leave Amsterdam without going for a stroll.

Every morning people walk, carry babies, joging...so relaxing. But remember that in winter or spring can be very cold...

“Awesome place to take a stroll and chill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

My husband and I walked most of Vondelpark in an attempt to get lost.......We ventured into the park with nothing on our agenda, which proved to be beneficial. The park entrance we encountered was located, almost hidden, behind a street of residental buildings. You can tell as you walk, that the park is used as thoroughfare (cut-through) for some commuters, as well as a spot for relaxation. We bought some provisions, found a spot to sit and wasted the afternoon away, eating and strolling through the most beautiful scenery!!

“Vondelpark - enjoy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Great place to escape from some of the mad touristy areas of Amsterdam. Hire a bike, cycle around, walk it, explore it - enjoy a picnic. It's what the locals are doing. Lovely escape.
