“All season park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

This park has more to offer than only midget golf, petting zoo, small train that drive you around the park. There are some restaurants inside. You can find some artwork in the park and sometimes there is also exhibition in the "Glazen Huis". In the wildlife garden you see many kind of plants and small animals like squirrel, common pheasant or birds. In the pond the water birds will play undisturbly. In every season this park is worth it to visit. End April or May the best part to visit is the Rhododendron valley, it is blooming in all colour. There are some "Highland Cow" to see and also a nest of White Stork at the south part of the park. Take tram no.4 from the Amsterdam Central Station to the end stop and 5 minutes walk to the park.

“Spectacular in season”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

This park was built for the Floriade in 1972, and is now open for the public all year round. It is always very pretty, in a corner of the city, but the most spectacular time is late April, early May, when the "Rhododendron Valley" is in full bloom. You will not believe your eyes!

“Wonderful miniature golf experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

We are avid mini golfers and try to do mini golf wherever we go. When we heard that there was mini golf in Amsterdam we were very excited. The course is one of kind in that it is a miniature of a real golf course. There are virtually no gimmicks at the holes. Instead, each hole has its own sand trap and was landscaped so that you had to really think about how to hit the ball. There is a more traditional kiddie mini golf adjacent to the more mature mini golf course. Only criticism is that we believe that the balls may have not been real golf balls. The putters were real putters, however. A really good experience for golfers and non-golfers alike
