    Fantastic park for walking your dog! You can walk for an hour or more on the off-leash paths from end to end. Plenty of swimming areas for your dog to cool down in the summer. We love it here!

    Awesome park, even bigger than Vondelpark, in the former premises of a gas processing factory. They preserve some of the buildings for cafes and restaurants, and there's lot of natural to walk or bike

    Great park to chill after work. It's never too crowded. There's two parts, one that's a real park with a lake and trees, and another part that is 'cultuurpark' without trees so with a lot of sun.

    A park with a culture. It has art galleries, event halls, jazz club, dance clubs in it. It's a regular host for a number of music and food festivals, especially in summertime.

    The best park in Amsterdam, especially in the summertime. Lots of wide open space for a picnic, plenty of festivals, and cool bars.

    A little bit of everything: playground, animals, bars and restaurants, movie theater and green areas close to the water to lie in the sun.

    No. 3 best park in Amsterdam. The venues located at the side of the park are divers, creative and delicious!

    Picnics, bars, clubs, cinema, galleries, this park has it all! Try biking farther west of westergasfabriek for serene nature including tons of hopping bunnies.

    A great place for....most things you would like to do in a park. Picnic, relaxing strolls, soak in some sun, go for a run, people watch etc. Also, it's not as busy as Vondelpark so that's a bonus

    Use a free plastic plaid, which can be found near several entrances, under your own plaid as the ground is very moisty.

    On a sunny day, unexpectedly call a close friend or preferably a loved one. Go to Westerpark in Amsterdam with some food and drinks and enjoy each other's company in the sun :)
