Beatrixpark - A small, pleasant and quiet park named after the Dutch Queen is one of the cleanest in Amsterdam. It is located behind the RAI congress centre in the South Amsterdam.
A group of 1100 people united in a society of the park’s friends, protects the Beatrixpark against neglect and bureaucratic lack of common sense. The society constantly observes changes in the park, keeping it in a nice, friendly shape. The park is near to the street Diepenbrockstraat.
• Spacious, grassy fields; shaded paths; blooming gardens surrounding a water-lilied pond with fountain; manicured hedge garden; wading pool for children; canals clean enough that children and dogs) swim in them.
• Significantly less populated, cleaner and quieter than more centrally located parks.
• Attracts almost exclusively locals -- families, children, responsible dog owners and anyone seeking real peace and quiet.
• Ideal for picnicking, walking, throwing Frisbee, playing soccer, sunbathing and generally lounging in a calm atmosphere.
• Named after (current) Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands.
