Plaswijckpark, a small-scale recreational park, has been around for more than 95 years. It is located on the Bergse Achterplas in Hillegersberg-Schiebroek on the northern edge of Rotterdam. At family park Plaswijckpark you can play by yourself or romp with your friends, you won’t get bored! The park has three different areas.
Speelwijck (play area)
Speelwijck has more playgrounds than you have ever seen in one place before. Take the Port Playground: you are guaranteed to get soaking wet! In the Monkey Playground, you can swing like crazy on the ropes. And in the Traffic Playground, you can prove that you know how to drive better than your parents.
House in the Hill
In the middle of Speelwijck, you will find the House in the Hill. This indoor playhouse is bigger than three tennis courts! Great for when it’s pouring outside. Here you can do everything you are not allowed to do at home: jump on the beds, squirt bubble bath and run, clamber and crawl through a maze of secret tunnels and corridors.
Dierenwijck (animal area)
This is the Plaswijkpark zoo. Some animals are familiar, like the black swans and otters, but who knows what a nandoe or an alpaca is? You can also test your sailing techniques on the raft! Or splash around in the Speelbeek.
Wandelwijck (walking area)
When you need to take a break from all the running and playing, Wandelwijck is the best place to relax. Find a nice spot on the grass for an afternoon picnic or enjoy a sandwich on one of the many picnic benches.
Plaswijckpark has several restaurants with a terrace, where drinks and (healthy) snacks are served. Groups of 20 or more get a group discount. Plaswijckpark can be reached by tram line 25 from Rotterdam Central Station in about 20 minutes. Cars can park for free in the car park near the entrance
