Nature-Park

Even though Amsterdam is a well-planned city, it does lack green spaces. That is why Vondelpark is a lush natural oasis, much loved by locals and returning visitors alike. The park’s formation dates back to 1864, when city planners reshaped a marshland into a place for residents to take a respite amongst flora and fauna. Inspired by English gardens, it was first called New Park. However, the garden was later rechristened to Vondelpark, after the Dutch poet Joost van den Vondel. Covering close to 120 acres, Vondelpark remains busy throughout the week but especially during the weekends. Annually, it receives over 10 million visitors. Walk around the grounds, and you’ll find over 100 species of trees, an open-air theatre, various birds, a rose garden, a pond, running tracks, and many sculptures. A great picnic spot, it also has playgrounds to keep the little ones busy. When the weather permits outdoor activities during the summertime, Vondelpark is abuzz with family-friendly events like music concerts, flea markets, and free theatrical performances.
