One of the many advantages of Rotterdam is that there is nature around one of the largest parks, the park near the Euromast, one of Rotterdam’s oldest and best-known landmarks. The park has lanes, benches and secret hideaways for you to find. Most of the trees in the park are over a hundred years old. The best part is that the park has some beautiful birds and if you are lucky, you may see and hear the sing-song of the green parakeets which inhabit the park.
The park has a variety of places to have a (takeaway) coffee, lunch or dinner, some of which are set in beautiful sixteen- and seventeenth-century buildings. One of the buildings has a small Dutch landscaped garden. Naturally, this park being in Rotterdam, there is also some art to be found. There are barbeque areas in the park which are for the public. Once the weather allows, you will see groups of families and friends having picnics and setting up their barbeque for some delicious bites and fun. The park is also a host to various festivals and events, so keep an eye out for those.
Want an even more secluded part of green? Visit the historical garden Historische Tuin Schoonoord. So go for a walk or a run, do yoga in the park, listen to your music or chat with a friend and some green TLC. The city is not far away and will be waiting for you.
