Located in Amsterdam West, the Westerpark is a wonderful place to walk, skate, relax or have a picnic with friends. This green expanse dotted with trees and ponds is part of the Westergas complex, a former gasworks that was completely renovated in recent years. Besides the park, this area is home to a nice selection of cafés, restaurants and bars, as well as an art-house cinema and a variety of small creative businesses. Many large cultural events take place here throughout the year, and certain buildings can be rented by the public for events, parties or even weddings.
