DakPark is a man-made park high above the rooftops in the Rotterdam neighbourhood Delfshaven. It is 1200 metres long and 85 metres wide. This is the largest public roof park in Europe and has spectacular 360-degree views of the ports and high-rise buildings. There is always something to see and experience at the Dakpark. You can picnic, barbecue, walk or sunbathe. For children, there is a playground and a water staircase to splash in.
The park also has several beautiful (vegetable) gardens. The sheep of city shepherd Martin Oosthoek graze in the park. If the wind blows, you can retreat to the Warmth Room, a walled garden with Mediterranean plants. In the summer, there is often a kiosk selling home-made refreshments, and all kinds of activities take place, from yoga to bootcamp.
In 2018, DakPark was mentioned in the Spotted by Locals list of 25 best parks in Europe.
