The Park was built in the second half of the 19th century in the style of the English countryside, according to a design by the father- son duo Zocher. The Droom en Daad foundation has the ambition to transform the Park to the most beautiful urban park in Europe. The original design by Zocher will be restored to its full splendor. In collaboration with the municipality of Rotterdam and relevant stakeholders the first phase of this restoration will focus on the theme “clean, complete and safe”. We aim to realize a park which will always be “open and accessible to everyone”.
