Around the corner, you can find an ‘oldskool’ open air swimming pool. During summertime it can be very crowdy, but always cozy!
On hot days, you can take a swim at the Flevoparkbad. The price for one person is €3,30 for a day.
“One of the nicest streets in Amsterdam East is the Javastraat Amsterdam. Full with shops and products from all around the world together with super trendy hotspots. At the grocery store you buy the best vegetables, bread, herbs and spices. Next thing you plump down at a nice coffee bar, lunchroom, or restaurant. ”
“It’s my favourite spot to catch the sun and have a coffee with apple pie. But they also have great food and you can watch a movie. The funny side of this place, all workers earn the same from managers to waiters. For me it’s heaven to grab a coffee in the morning sun and watch people and daily life.”
“this park is bigger (and more quiet) than the Oosterpark, so if you want a longer route for your run, you can go here. ”
“The all day sunny terrace is its main attraction, people watching and enjoying food & wine in the late afternoon or early eavening. Also super cosy inside, former Bath House renovated to restaurant.”
“A still undiscovered gem of Amsterdam East. This old Dutch gin distillery, built around 1800 is hidden in the Flevopark. The owners produce around a hundred gins and liqueurs of their own, which you can taste in the Proeverij. You can sip a strawberry or apple gin on the small terrace overlooking the water. The place opens 3 till 8 PM, closed on mondays. The Flevopark itself is a pleasant park: you can swim in the large lake 'Het Nieuwe Diep', and get lost in the trees and wildflowers in the many small wood-gathered paths. ”
