Amsterdam's most famous park was designed and built in 1850 and today is a popular place for tourists and residents who can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, jogging and picnicking.
We went for a walk in the park on the recommendations from many vids I watched about Amsterdam on you tube. It was pretty, pleasant, and we enjoyed watching dogs frolic off leash. It was quite pretty, and a nice excursion.
Very spacious and peaceful considering u are surrounded by the busy roads in the city! Nice wide paths for walkers and bikes. Nice bridges and statues to look at and ponds to walk around! Nice to dodge the traffic noice for a while!
This surprisingly large (45 hectares) park, reminds us why green spaces in an urban environment are so important. Established in the mid 19th century and named after the Dutch poet Joost van den Vondel this rectangular park area continues to serve the public very well...More
We visited here March 19. We went for a walk around the park and sat and people watched for a bit. It’s a lovely place and I imagine it would be very good in Summer when the plants and trees are properly out. Definitely worth...More
Very beautiful and big park. You could spend here a whole day just chilling.

Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter.

Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.

I've only visited in the autumn so I can't answer that. However, if you are looking for inexpensive things to do in and around Amsterdam I'd recommend one of the two free ferry crossings across the amstel river (from behind the train station) and a day trip to Haarlem or Leiden. Pretty typically dutch scenery of lowlands and windmills on the way to these charming towns.
