The Zuiderpark located in the South of Rotterdam is as large as 430 soccer fields and the largest city park of the Netherlands. It’s a beautiful place to walk through, but also perfect for jogging, skating and you can even canoe at the lake. There are also lots of large fields where people play soccer.

Quit and peaceful


When you’re walking through the beautiful park you forget you’re actually in a busy city. When walking further and further into the forest the noise of the cars will disappear. It’s so quit and peaceful then. For the more sporty types the outside area of the Sportplaza must be visited. You can take some of the fitness equipment over there and use it for free. Hungry after all these exercise? Then go to restaurant Oriental Park or grand café Koriander (my favourite). You find them both at the Zuiderpark.

Adventure Island


The park is so large, I still haven’t seen it all yet. There is so much to see and to do. Normally I just make a walk through the forest. I love to see the colours of the trees changing every season. When you are with kids, then go to the ‘Avontureneiland’ (Adventure Island). The municipality has placed large play rocks on the island where the kids can play. Or go to the childer’s zoo called ‘De Molenwei’ and don’t forget to make a round at ‘Cultural and historical botanical garden’. Your kids can learn the names of the many different types of plants in the garden over here.
