A park with no name?
The city park next to the Euromast doesn't have a name and is simply called the park, but sometimes it's also called the Euromast park or Zochers park, named after the architect. You can relax in this green oasis and escape from the hectics of the nearby city centre. Rotterdam's biggest park is the park at Lake Kralingen, which is located a bit further away from the city centre.
Euromast park or Zochers park Rotterdam
The Park is located along the river Maas and next to the Euromast and Scheepvaartkwartier. From nearly any place in the park you've got a magnificient view at the Euromast. The eastern part of the park dates from 1853 and was designed by architect Jan David Zocher and his son Louis Paul in English landscape style. The park was extended in 1886 when the western part, also called the Hill was added to the park.
Getting married in the park
The park is quite big and beside some trees there's so much more to see. For example you can see the wooden Norwegian Church which was built in 1914. This small church was donated by Norway to the Netherlands when Norway became an independent country. Furthermore you can see the monumental villa Heerenhuys which was built around 1800. There's a beautiful garden in front of the villa and you can even get married in this villa!
