The park was packed mostly with people under 30. For some reason they were all packed together and there were loads of BBQ's being lit. Others had picnics and we did see someone coming with a casserole! People were drinking, smoking and listening to music. There was a very obvious police presence, so I can only assume it got more rowdy as the night went on

Very old and lovely park. Named after a famous 17th century author Joost van den Vondel (earlier called Amsterdam park). the biggest and most popular park in Amsterdam. Lost of space for a picnic or relaxing. The trees are amazing. Containing several places to eat (haven't tried any of them), and multiple pieces of art including "Fish by pablo Picasso" the only outdoor Picasso sculpture?
