“Oasis of calm with interesting wildlife.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

I spent a couple of hours wandering though this charming, spacious park between visiting museums. As a keen birdwatcher I was delighted to find a stork just metres away from me strutting around collecting twigs for its nest. Further along a heron was fishing, oblivious to cyclists and roller skaters, and a pair of egyptian geese swam in the lake by the cafe with their tiny chicks. I discovered my third Iamsterdam statue: this one sports a gold crown. It was not a crowded as the signs in front of the Rijksmuseum and at the airport. I would imagine it is beautiful in summer when the flowers are in full bloom.

“Great place to walk relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

After a few hours of dodging bikes and scooters along the canals, this is a great place to walk, sit at a bench and enjoy some quiet time.

“Relax...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Vondelpark is a lovely green space nearby museum district.
We walked round Vondelpark during visit to Amsterdam. Cyclists, runners, walkers, dog walkers and roller-bladers using the park as a place for relaxing.
You can spend some hours in the sunshine just relaxing.

“just a park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

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.
