This place is a hidden gem ! If one stays at the hotel there is free admission to the park. The grounds are extensive and lovely landscaping with flowers, trees, ponds, and a couple of small exhibits and the different kinds of birds are amazing. We had a lovely time walking around the park for about two hours and still would like to return at a different time of year to see the different things in bloom. There was an unusual pelican who quickly bonded with my partner and followed him around for about 20 minutes. It was quite humorous except that she began to get territorial and actually tried to chase me away a few times.
What is really nice about this park is that it was started by a husband and his wife about 60 years ago and despite the area becoming built up over the decades, this area is sure to remain a park for at least the near future!
It is so close to Schiphol airport and to Amsterdam that it easily can be a day trip.
