“nice park with olympic rowing history.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Originally this park was built for the olympic games before ww2 , now it's a very relaxing place to be especially during weekdays when it's quiet. A great place tojust stroll along.

“A cyclists dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

One has the idea that Holland is small, but Amsterdam has such great wooded parks for cycling right on the edge of the city and this is one not to be missed. Find the organic farm!

“Bring your bike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

What a treasure for Amsterdam. Rent a bike and wander the Bos. I am amazed at the penchant the Dutch have for the outdoors. Bike paths go everywhere and you can stop to watch the sculls, have a picnic or just people watch
