Westergasfabriek Park in Amsterdam


Seen on a trip recently, this is a wonderful private space with a stepped water course with a Japanese feel surrounded by massive ferns and Acer palmatums.  The Westergasfabriek is a treat for all the senses.  You can hear water flowing through the marsh ponds and watch as trains disappear behind the embankment. Many areas are paved, but there are gently swaying wildflower meadows too.  The park offers wide open space as well as intimacy. Although it can sometimes get very busy, peace and quiet is only a few steps away. This park is packed with surprises.
