Wonderful park not far from our apartment.. There’s streams, lakes, bike paths, dog areas, convention centres, a hotel, cafes, restaurant, shops and statues..lots of birdlife. And animals in a child’s farmyard ( I can’t understand Dutch so I’m just guessing ) Really enjoyed our wandering...More

We did a guided bike tour, and Westerpark was part of the tour. When we stopped in the park, many people were there eating, drinking, and being merry. If we had time during our trip, a picnic would be awesome for a couple. At the...More

You can go to Westergasfabriek and have some drinks/food/music. There are several small parks inside Westerpark for kids. Running, walking, biking, rollerblading! Or just lay down and read your book. Lovely place!

For running? This is one of the best! You can take 3K or 5K loop in this park. But it is difficult to looking for a shop if you are thirsty or need a cup of coffee. Nothing there, just running or jogging

We walked around this park in the Spring sunshine which made it 100 percent better. It's worth a visit, we were killing time waiting for our time slot at the Anne Frank house but is was time well spent.

Most tourists and locals know about and go to Vondel Park. There are many other parks, some very small and intimate and a few larger, but none to the size of Vondel. Westerpark, established in 1891, is located as the name implies on the West...More

Not quite in the park but near by yes. Nearest the station would be the most expensive so maybe try somewhere little further away-vondlepark has them for hire :)

If you do a Google search, you wil find several coffeeshop options on your way from Centraal Station to Westerpark. Have fun!
