The Oosterpark is located on the east side of Amsterdam, in a culturally diverse section of town. Thus it's a popular venue for cultural activities involving various groups including Surinamese, Indonesians, Indians, Muslims and others.

But anyone can enjoy this beautiful park. I found the design intriguing as the paths lead to sudden viewpoints offering different perspectives on each section of the park.

Another interesting feature of the park are numerous metal sculptures like the one above. One statue honors a sheepdog named Albert, who helped track down 200 fugitives for the Amsterdam Police department. A new monument will be unveiled July 1st, 2002 to commemorate the Slave History of Holland, which brought the ancestors of those who live around the park to the Netherlands.

You can view a variety of birdlife in the ponds at the Oosterpark.
