Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely bike ride from the city centre, a few hours in nature and kids loved the space and freedom to roam about just a few kilometres from the busyness of central Amsterdam! Worth a visit and the bike ride from the city centre is very manageable even with primary school aged kids, especially on a tandem!

I came here on my first day--I don't get jetlagged, and I wanted to explore the city during the time my group was napping. It's definitely off the beaten track; I didn't see any tourists, signage was limited, and at times it was remote enough that I was on my guard. I think the area is very safe, and in general the Dutch are fantastic respectful people, so I wasn't too alarmed. Still, if you're a solo female traveler, you may want to be aware that you can easily find yourself alone with a stranger in a very remote area. You either need to be comfortable with that or take precautions if you aren't. I didn't expect this. I also didn't realize it was quite this natural--there are plenty of paved paths, but it's a good idea to bring sneakers, since a good chunk of the park is more wooded. It was a lovely area and something a little different, but it wasn't ask exciting as I had hoped.

This park is MUCH larger than I expected. I would have given it another star if it had been a little easier to navigate. The signs were only in Dutch, which was unusual for Amsterdam. I was never able to find the Play Islands, and I would have liked to see more playgrounds, but it was a wonderful, humongous park. We did manage to find the goat farm, and made the most of the experience. We rented bikes in town, and rode them to the park, which is quite far from city center. I wouldn't walk there unless you are ready to go several miles. It is flat.

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.
