When first looking at a map of Rotterdam, it seems that there is only one urban park. ‘The Park’, located near the Euromast, is the most central green space of Rotterdam. Thankfully, it is not the only one.
The Vroesenpark is located just north of the train tracks and slightly to the west of the city center. It is a real city park. In summer, the grass is covered with urbanites lounging around, throwing around a frisbee and getting a tan. There are play areas for children, walking paths, and barbecue areas (see this map). Basically for those of us that don’t have a garden, it’s our communal backyard.
In August, the park becomes extra fun when the festival ‘Duizel in het Park‘ takes place. So much creativity, originality and poetry overtake the park then, it is a lot of fun!
