“nice park with olympic rowing history.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Originally this park was built for the olympic games before ww2 , now it's a very relaxing place to be especially during weekdays when it's quiet. A great place tojust stroll along.

Relaxed kids farm with goats enclosures and free range chickens roaming around. YOu can buy small bottles of milk to feed to the baby goats whch kids loved. Nice shop to buy goats cheese and fresh eggs as well as goats milk ice cream and café. Fun playground for kids, too.

“A cyclists dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

One has the idea that Holland is small, but Amsterdam has such great wooded parks for cycling right on the edge of the city and this is one not to be missed. Find the organic farm!

“Bring your bike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

What a treasure for Amsterdam. Rent a bike and wander the Bos. I am amazed at the penchant the Dutch have for the outdoors. Bike paths go everywhere and you can stop to watch the sculls, have a picnic or just people watch

“hood and hype!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

nice place situated in the "bos" behind the ING ship, the food was excellent and with a very modern presentation I like, good but expensive wines, it is a jetset place, dress accordingly!
