The oldest public park in the Netherlands and well worth a visit

Overview

The entrance to the park, a large wooded area on the edge of the city, is about 15 minutes’ walk/wheel from the northern end of the city centre. Once in the park, the paths are either of well-compacted gravel or brick paving, with some tarmac cycle paths. There is an animal park, popular with children, a floral clock and pleasant shady walking.

Transport & Parking

0

WNe can’t comment on the parking. The edges of the park are served by wheelchair accessible buses from the city centre, but there was a bus strike the day we visited, so we couldn’t use them.

Access

Good - just a couple of places where you cross roads to get from one area of the park to another, and the drop-downs are a bit bumpy. The paths through the park should be fine for someone self propelling in a manual chair. Access to the facilities at the centre of the animal closure involves passing two heavy gates but other visitors were quick to help with these.

Toilets

0

We saw no sign of an accessible toilet.
