“If you need to escape the crowds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Plenty of green space just to wander around or sit and get away from it all for a while, Still seemed peaceful even on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Mixed crowd of people, some families and those with picnics - although also some drinking parties there, however there is space to avoid the rowdier elements. Beware the cyclists and mopeds .

Had lovely stroll around this beautiful park, very relaxing its hard to believe its in a busy city. Nice walk with cafe and very easy to find its close to leidesplein and hard rock cafe. Good if you want nice break from this busy city to recharge yourself .

“Great place on a sunny Sunday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

All of Amsterdam seemed to be enjoying the sun here on Sunday.loads of room for cycling or walking the dog.good spot to take a seat in the sun with a picnic from V and D,read your book or people watch.
There is a cafe in the centre but it was basic.

Loved this clean and green park with its lakes, colourful tulips and cyclists of all ages and types! Spent a lovely sunny afternoon there with my family people watching and sunbathing on Easter weekend.

“Peaceful, beautiful and free to sit down!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

In a city where it feels like you have to buy something to sit down ANYWHERE- Vondel Park in Amsterdam is a much welcomed relief for the feet!!!! Went there for an afternoon- but think I could have stayed all day!

Peaceful, beautiful and a great place for people and dog watching!
