Very nice for jogging, walking, playing soccer or just chilling. In june there is a festival called 'The Parade', it's one of the best theater-festivals in the Netherlands.

“The best park in town”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

All that you want in a park: nice play-garden, picknick area (both busy on a Saturday) and a nicely hidden Tea-garden which also serves a healthy meal. Only disadvantage (we find) is that they allow no dogs.

“superb park and gorgeous rose garden”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Visit in Spring to see rhododendrons or in late Spring to Summer to see the rose garden. The park is well known for this. There are lots of roses and other plants. There are plenty of seats around the gardens so you can sit in the park and enjoy the views in the sun.

While you are there, you can have coffee in the park and look at the German bunker. Children visiting will be amused by the lilly pond in the middle of the gardens near the bunker as there are often frogs there. You can hear them croaking. There is also a little park area with swings, rounmdabouts and play areas. Adults may enjoy the pulley ride as much as children :-)

This neighbourhood of Scheveningen is really lovely. There are some huge houses and villas nearby.

One time when it is perhaps less enjoyable as a garden in which to relax is during the Parade theatre festival in Summer (June or so).

There is a Chinese restaurant in the middle of the park and a lovely little waterside cafe called De Waterkant where you can hire boats.

Take tram 9 and get off near the large church on Nieuwe Duinweg. The park can be reached easily by bicyle or is within walking distance of most parts of Scheveningen and the Archipel area.
