    Vondelpark & Old West Neighbourhood

    Welcome! You should be standing outside the entrance to the Vondelpark, with its magnificent statue in the middle of the gates.

    The Vondelpark is my favorite park and as I live very close to this park, I consider it as my garden. I really don’t mind at all if others make use of it and enjoy it like I do. It's a popular spot for both local residents and visitors to Amsterdam, who like to relax with a bottle of wine or enjoy a picnic. Other people often use it as an open air fitness club, especially at the end of the day and in the weekend.

    So let's get going. You can start your walk right now by entering the park and making your way straight down the wide path.

    [2 SECOND PAUSE]

    While you walk, I'll tell you how this works.

    VoiceMap uses GPS to play audio at each location automatically. So you can put your phone away and listen to my voice for directions. There will be occasional silence, but this just means we are in between locations.

    [1.5 SECOND PAUSE]

    One time I passed this entrance area around sunset and hundreds of bright green coloured Rose-ringed parakeets gathered in the big trees at the entrance, which was quite a noisy spectacle. These parakeets have adapted to live in the Vondelpark far away from their tropical home grounds.

    Continue walking down this path. You'll hear from me again at the next location.
