Westbroekpark

Stroll along the paths, visit the playground, paddle over the lake, enjoy a game of mini golf or visit the rose garden in this monumental city park.

Westbroekpark is The Hague’s public “front yard.” Explore its extensive network of paths and statues on foot or by bike, enjoy a picnic or high tea, or simply relax on the grass. Walk through the well-tended rose garden in the height of summer and delight in the scent created by thousands of blooms. 

The Westbroekpark has been a local favorite ever since it was created in 1925. Pieter Westbroek was the council worker who first envisaged a big city park on this spot, so it was named after him when he died. The 44-acre (18-hectare) area combines garden beds, woodland, ponds and playing fields.

Visit between the months of June and October to walk around the Rosarium when up to 25,000 roses are in bloom. On the second Thursday of July rose judges announce the winner of the annual International Rose Competition, which takes place here.

Stop for refreshments in the tearoom, which faces the lake. The tearoom also rents out rowboats, so you can follow your morning or afternoon coffee and cake with a peaceful hour or so on the water.

If you are into more active sports, head to the large playing fields. It is also nice just to relax on the grass and watch the locals enjoy a game of soccer or Frisbee in the sunshine. Children will love the mini golf facility in the park.

Keep your eye out for the many sculptures around the park. These include De Gelaarsde Kat (Puss in Boots) by Johan Keller and the tall concrete monument with bronze statues by Piet Esser dedicated to the Dutch socialist leader Troelstra.

In summer Westbroekpark is home to the Parade, a popular traveling theater. See short performances in tents, enjoy food and beverages and partake in outdoor entertainment. Check the festival’s website for the dates and schedules.

The Westbroekpark is a public space located in between Scheveningen Beach and the Madurodam miniature park in The Hague. The park is served by buses and trams from the city center.
