My wife did a Park Run here while we were on holiday. Easy to get to by bus from Amsterdam and then a really short walk. Lots to see and just relax.
Nice community cafe by the entrance.

We live nearby and love the fresh air and excellent walking trails. Amsterdam bos is great for everyone wanting to get out and you can either walk or cycle.

Utterly ruined by the sheer volume of dog poop.

It would be a beautiful place to spend the day with the family but it's just a dog toilet. It's hard to understand why Dutch dog owners are happy with this or why there are no laws stopping it from happening.

It would be a beautiful place, filled with views and birds, but I was too concerned about the kids walking through poop to really enjoy it.

This park is between Amsterdam and the Airport. It is nice to cycle or walk around, but if you really like nature, it is beter to go to the dunes along the coast or the Veluwe.

To my full surprise, I biked into this forest right outside Amsterdam. Amazing how close to urban Amsterdam I dropped into this forest. Fairly large surface, constructed about a century ago with inspiration from Versailles, Schönbrun and other famous places in Europe.

I took some truffles and wandered around this place at night. Really trippy place! I remember there being sand, then a lake, then woodchip under my feet. It is an artificial forest so its beautiful but designed.

This is on the outskirts of Amsterdam. There is a large "de Poel" in the centre of it. There are walking and jogging tracks around the pool of water. The massive size of the pool is fascinating. The sight of the church at the corner of the pool makes for a great landscape.

Watch the video of "De Poel" in the channel listed in my profile!
