As for children, they flock here because they get to enjoy themselves in the biggest back yard in Amsterdam.
“There’s play pond for toddlers and a tree-top walkway for older kids. No, kids will never get bored here!”
The Vondelpark’s main purpose used to be to give city folk a brief taste of nature, but these days, there’s all sorts going on. Children in particular can have hours of fun there. For instance, there’s play pond for toddlers and a tree-top walkway for older kids. During summer there are shows (some free) in the open air theatre, five playgrounds and several ice cream vans. If you’re thirsty, then make your way to the Groot Melkhuis with play area or the Vondeltuin with its sandpit and slides.
