“Pretty Park in the heart of Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We rode our bikes through this park which was very enjoyable as the streets are very busy and the local bikers very aggressive. I don't think it makes for an enjoyable walking experience as there were many other bikers doing the same thing. There was a temporary art exhibit which was pleasant to experience along with the lovely gardens and fields.

“Vondelpark very large”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

It is clear the Ameterdammers enjoy their park. If you want to stroll in the park you need to have a lot of time.
We discovered that the park can be very tiresome if you loose your direction.There is not many signs to establish where you are.
On a cool evening there were a lot of people walking and socialising in the park.

“The best part of Amsterdam!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Loved this park,it surprises at every turn.And a good idea the sculptures act as markers on the map to where you are as very big park.So many young people having BBQs and enjoying themselves and people of all ages on bikes skateboards and skates!
