Throwback: 1970

Happy reading

Julianapark, one of the oldest urban parks in the Netherlands, is the perfect spot to spend a summer’s day lying in the sun with a good book. The construction of the southern part of the park was commissioned in 1903 by a wealthy family of bankers called Kol. In 1928, the grounds were sold to the municipality of Utrecht, on the condition that it would remain a public park for at least another hundred years. The park was extended to its current size in 1935.
