This park isn't particularly pretty, but it has a fantastic location in De Pijp, so I can recommend it for that alone. :) Plenty of people come here with their friends and dogs to soak in the spring and summer air.

Decent park for a walk or a rest. Also nice for photo taking. There are public toilets but be warned there isn't any soap and the water is freezing cold and the hand dryer is rubbish! I'm glad I had hand gel on me.

This is a small, quiet park in the Pijp area. It is close to the Albert Cypt market. It is perfect for quiet relaxation compared to the Vondelpark since cyclists are not allowed here. However, dogs are a big nuisance since they are not on...More

But beyond that, it's really just a pleasant park for locals. If you happen to be in the neighborhood as we were on a nice day by all means stop in, but it's not a destination like Vondelpark. The public toilet is in the East...More
