Park Bloeyendael
“I find it a very nice place for walking and playing my ukulele. The park is right next to my house and I can get there easily. From this park, you can go in many directions and if you do it right, you'll find yourself in the centre of Utrecht!”

Nature Reserve Amelisweerd
“It gives me the space to empty my head once in a while.”

Fortress bij Rijnauwen
“It’s hard to miss Fort Rijnauwen if you go on your morning runs around the forest in Amelisweerd. The history behind the walls adds a bit of character to the forest and its beautiful flora and fauna. The sunset walks there are amazing too, definitely check it out in the early months of May, when it’s the perfect weather”

Juliana Park
“In every season the juliana park is a nice place to walk. And in the summer you can have a picnic among the chickens”

  • By Berne + 1

Park Lepelenburg
“If you are looking for a location somewhere easy to access from Utrecht Centraal and also having some supermarket options, that is your destination. It is not the biggest park in Utrecht but one of my favorite so far!”

Maxima Park
“Máximapark is where the green meets the modern. It is a lovely place to go for a walk and let go of the daily stressors.”

Wilhelminapark
“I have a very sweet dog who I love to walk and play with. When we go to the Wilhelmina Park together, she is as happy as a pup and runs/swims after everything.”

Griftpark
“I love this location, because people always walk their dogs here so you are bound to see a fluffy dog walking around.”

Botanical Gardens
“Whenever I am here, I feel a sense of peace. Seeing all the colorful flowers, streams, and bright green trees reminds me of how complex and beautiful our Earth is.”

Park Het Gagelbos
“During all the lockdowns I could be found here a lot to rollerblade or walk. Nice and close to home, but not in the city.”

Juliana Park
“I can't believe I only went here recently. This is such a nice place to visit if you want to see some animals, but don't feel like paying money or traveling to another city. It's also a great place to drop by if they ran out of chicken at your supermarket :)”
