Plaswijckpark is the place that has been answering the question: 'what shall I do with the children today for almost a hundred years? In addition, the family park does not have one answer, but a whole range of activities for a fairly wide age group, spread over 15 hectares of indoor and outdoor fun.


Anyone visiting Plaswijckpark for the first time will be quite overwhelmed by the possibilities and the size of the park. The park consists of three fully-fledged parts, or 'Wijcken', each with its own style and atmosphere. Especially for children from about 2 to 12 years old there is a lot to do, but also for other ages it is good to stay here.


The most spectacular part of the park can be found on the south side: Speelwijck. This is designed with so much imagination and versatility that it seems as if it was decorated by children themselves. Toppers here are the large water playground and especially the huge traffic garden. There you can ride your go-kart along houses, shops, a gas station and even through a race track with a speedometer. The little ones were also considered: for them there is a smaller traffic garden where you as a parent can keep a close eye on how your crook takes a hairpin turn for the first time.


The classic part of Plaswijckpark is for the most part designed as an English garden: tall trees, long paths, splashing fountains and chattering birds. It is a pleasant oasis of tranquility among all the playing violence, and an excellent place to relax, have a picnic, or even take the pen to finally work on your debut collection. The Rosarium is also very beautiful, near the park entrance. A romantic place where you can stroll around even with the little ones.


Plaswijckpark does not just have a simple petting zoo, but is an animal park officially recognized by Dier & Park. It may be a matter of taste, but we think they have managed to collect the absolute stars of the animal world in beautiful spacious enclosures. Meerkats, alpacas, eagles, prairie dogs, rheas, otters and walibis… and that's just a small selection. In addition to the animal park, in Dierenwijck you will also find the Aai land, which looks like a classic farm and indeed: you can cuddle animals there.


House in the hill

Even in bad weather you could spend an entire afternoon in Plaswijckpark. In a large artificial hill in Speelwijck you will find the house of grandpa and grandma Van der Plas next to a restaurant. And yes: with grandpa and grandma you can do everything you are not allowed to do at home. The bed is a trampoline, you can put your own show on the television, you can climb in the birdcage, scramble through the cupboards and shoot with water balls in the bathroom. Whoever made this up can, in our opinion, win a creativity prize. In addition, grandpa and grandma have a considerable base, because the indoor playground has three tennis courts.


The park can be quite busy on weekends and during vacations. Keep this in mind when planning a day. Plaswijckpark has a handy feature on the website overview stand with expected crowds. Would you rather not stand in line for fries during peak hours? In Plaswijckpark you can just bring your own lunch for a quiet picnic. Just clean up your mess of course!

Did you know…

Plaswijckpark was founded in 1923 as Theetuin Hillegersberg, making it almost a hundred years old. The miraculous thing is that the park looks very modern, but still honors the past. In 1923, for example, walibis were already walking around in the park, and you can still float on a tour boat over the Bergse Achterplas.

Great for when it is not beach weather

Weekend in Rotterdam, actually wanted to go to the beach this Sunday, but we really enjoyed this park! Nice day out with our kids and were very happy that we had bought tickets in advance! Really saved to skip the line in 1 times :)

Super nice park!

It is a very nice zoo, but with a lot more. Fun play activities for children, especially fun in the summer, but was great again! Convenient that you now no longer had to queue at the checkout via the must see app. Hopefully you will have more museums soon!
