Reader reactions: these are our favorite (city) parks | To travel

Plenty of parks in the Netherlands where you can enjoy a nice walk and relax, according to the responses received this week after our call.

Moreover, many of you have sent nice photos. Such as Roland Rolo who likes to visit the Prinsentuin and the Westerpark in Leeuwarden.

Park Sonsbeek in Arnhem also passed by a number of times. Dirk van Schaick writes, for example, that it is “an oasis of tranquility with water, waterfalls, vistas and a fountain”.

“De Witte Watermolen, an old flour mill that now houses a nature center, is normally also worth a visit. That also applies to the Water Museum. ”

Jac van Ierssel writes, like others, that Stadspark Valkenberg is a beautiful entrance to the center of Breda. “The name is related to the falconry that was carried out by the Breda Nassaus. A quiet park with a pond, large fountain, art and the remains of defenses. ”

Parks are lovely, although last week it was busier in several places than corona rules allowed. We therefore wish you a lot of, but responsible hiking pleasure this spring!

Festival Park

Park Valkenberg in Breda is the nicest park for me. There you normally have the nicest festival in the Netherlands: BREDA BARST. The Valkenberg Park is the garden of students and residents.

Animal life

I like to go to the Zuiderpark with my lovely dogs. Relax and enjoy. Such a beautiful park with pond and animals. A barbecue there is a bit tricky with the dogs there.

Barneveld splendor

The Schaffelaarse bos in Barneveld has undergone a major overhaul. Originally it is a park with many avenues. A cow meadow with a moat around it, a castle with beautiful outbuildings and an orangery. Everything has been restored and it invites you to take a walk. ”The customer review has been automatically translated from Dutch.

Goat farm

I like to walk in the Amstelpark and cycle regularly in the Amsterdamse Bos, both south of the Zuidas. Especially in the Amstelpark, at the time built for the Floriade, you have the empire alone. The goat farm in the Amsterdamse Bos is always a nice day out.

Nature near Lelystad

We often walk in the Lelystad Nature Park. There are various walking routes and various animals to see, such as deer, bison, przewalski horses, storks and otters. You can also get a drink and the toilets are open.
