Amsterdam Wood

Local nameAmsterdamse Bos
LocationNorth Holland, Netherlands

The Amsterdamse Bos is an English park or landscape park in the municipalities of Amstelveen and Amsterdam. Although most of the park is located in Amstelveen, the owner of the park is the City of Amsterdam. The park was mainly built in the early 1930s, mostly by the unemployment relief. Because of World War II interrupting the building process, the last tree was not planted until the 1970s. Annually, almost 4.5 million people visit the park, which has a size of 1,000 hectares and is approximately three times the size of Central Park in New York City. In it, one can find animal parks, several sporting clubs, a rowing course, gardens and remembrance monuments.

Throughout the decades, the location has seen different gatherings, political manifestations and concerts. These often took place on the so-called Vietnam Meadow. Despite extensive protests, this part was turned into a tennis venue in 1994.
