Utrecht has numerous parks where you can take a stroll. A lot of them are in the centre of town, but if you venture out a bit further, you’ll find several parks that are bigger, greener and much more luscious. Transwijk park in the Kanaleneiland district is one of them.

Eilandsteede urban farm in Transwijk park

Transwijk park is a green oasis where locals like to come for a BBQ in the summer and spend the evening enjoying the last rays of sunshine on the wide, gently undulating lawns. Take a look in the Eilandsteede urban farm, where you can pet the goats and sheep and buy honey from a local beekeeper.

Whenever you head outside, always make sure you comply with the RIVM-guidelines
