“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

This was a lovely park with loads of water features, bike tracks (of course), open grassy areas and some very weird sculptures. Loved it.

“Pretty Park in the heart of Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We rode our bikes through this park which was very enjoyable as the streets are very busy and the local bikers very aggressive. I don't think it makes for an enjoyable walking experience as there were many other bikers doing the same thing. There was a temporary art exhibit which was pleasant to experience along with the lovely gardens and fields.

“Vondelpark very large”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

It is clear the Ameterdammers enjoy their park. If you want to stroll in the park you need to have a lot of time.
We discovered that the park can be very tiresome if you loose your direction.There is not many signs to establish where you are.
On a cool evening there were a lot of people walking and socialising in the park.
