Amsterdam’s most popular park is the Vondelpark (see best Amsterdam parks). Just sit on a bench and watch the Amsterdammers stroll, walk, run, bike or skate by. Dogs, babies, upperclass and far-from-upperclass… everyone enjoys the park, and so can you. There are no ‘private’ areas, so you can wander through the rose garden or play with kids at the puddling pool - all free of charge. There are restricted ‘BBQ areas’ and ‘dogs allowed areas’. Please, put your garbage in the bins.
