Nice park close to the city center, I dont think this is really special, not a ''must go'' definitely.
But is nice if you just want to rest for a while, there is a little bridge where you can take nice pictures. Avoid spending time here if you are in Amsterdam for a little time.

Our apartment in Overtoom was only about 50 metres from the park. Walking through virtually the whole park was a great way to get to the Museum Quarter.

Lots of runners, cyclists and dog walkers but there is plenty room for us all. Great place to have a walk in calm surroundings.

It was wonderful to enter this leafy area full of ponds, fountains and birds. So peaceful as a break from the city. Also several good cafes. This is a popular place for locals who cycle round the park or exercise their dogs. We went there 4 times in one week it was so good.

We walked round Vondelpark during a recent visit to Amsterdam. It is an amazing space, akin to Central Park in New York or Hyde Park in London. It is well used, with a steady stream of cyclists, runners, walkers and a couple of roller-bladers using the park as a place to exercise or relax. There are several places to get a coffee, or something more, and we spent 2 hours in the spring sunshine just wandering and relaxing with a coffee. A must see.
