If you’re looking for green space, a foray into one of the city’s many parks is the easiest (and closest) option, but you can also venture further afield. Grab your bike and head for Overvecht, for example. To the north of the district, you’ll find Noorderpark Ruigenhoek, a polder area with small fishing lakes that many locals probably don’t know about. It’s a beautiful spot for walking, biking or spreading a blanket on the banks of a lake for a picnic.
