“rent a bike and ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

This was one of the highlights of our trip. We rented a bike from Mac Bike and rode around the park for a while stopping for a few breaks to enjoy the scenery and the lakes. There are a few nice cafes in their too.

“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 .

“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.
