The park is located on a southern slope looking over the city. There are beech woods, wide lawns, clumps of old trees, lanes and winding pathes, a stream valley and intimate shrub gardens. In the centre lies a stately house, now a restaurant. The Dutch Water Museum is situated in a new building in the park.
