Amsterdam's most famous park was designed and built in 1850 and today is a popular place for tourists and residents who can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, jogging and picnicking.
Vondelpark sits in the heart of Amsterdam and is a beautiful park. It isn't too big or overwhelming which I think is perfect for an easy afternoon stroll. Amsterdam is a pretty busy city so I highly recommend spending some quiet time in this park.
Walked through this beautiful park, plenty of people playing with their dogs, riding bikes and running. Unfortunately it was very cold so we didn't spend too much time, but in the right weather it would be a nice diversion from shopping and museum hopping.
Found when walking around the city this is a clean an pleasant park.
Given the time of year it was cold so some of the streams were part frozen.
The park is a fair size so took ~1.5 hours to walk around.

Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.

The park is open 24 hrs but not advisable to be there at night. Tram 2 and 3 and any tram to Leidsplein which is near the casino American Hotel and Marriott Hotel. You walk across the street and you are there. Vondel was a 17th century poet.

Respectfully, I am trying very hard not to laugh at your question but the answer is yes, yes children of any age are allowed to ride bicycles. Children in the Netherlands are actually born with bicycles which, as you can imagine, is quite painful for the birthing mothers.
