Westerpark, which lends the surrounding neighbourhood its name, is a favourite spot for locals to unwind. Families push prams, couples hold hands and teams play cricket in the sweeping green space. When they're finished with the meadows and reedy marshes, people seek out the park's post-industrial buildings that have morphed into cafes, theaters, breweries and other creative spaces. It's a brilliant, eco-urban mash-up, prime for lolling away the day.
