This beautiful park is an awesome place for running, or a long walk and even cycling. It is very peaceful place just in the edge of Amsterdam. If you are a tourist in Amsterdam and you have plenty of time or you like to get away from hustle and bustle of crazy Amsterdam Centrum visit here, you will love it!

A huge park, not far from the city centre. It's worth to have a bike as the park is really big to walk around. I visited on a sunny day in early November so the colours where absolutely amazing. There are many beautiful spots to have a bbq or to relax, a lot of people bring their dogs to play.

Tired of the masses flocking to the cities' canals? Try visiting the lush "forrest" to the south of Amsterdam. It's a welcome green outing that will entertain you for the better part pf the day. Love it!!!

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a day of cycling around this park. There are lots of wildlife, they have some cows, which are friendly, we had to wait to see if it was ok to cycle past them as they were lying on the path. I saw a kingfisher on the canal too as well as lots of ducks and... More

I spend a lot of time in the Amsterdamsebos, either walking, cycling or horse-riding. It is very large, with many paths and beautiful nature. It can be very busy on week-ends. A must see iof you are spending a few days in Amsterdam.

It is a great park which a children's pool, people who row, run, cycle and ride their horses. If you look good you can find many animals wondering there as well!
