Rijswijk is a small town not far from The Hague, 15 minutes by tram. It is also where I got my first two corona vaccinations last summer. I visited again yesterday, taking a walk through a small park not far from the Rijswijk Central train station. That way I could enjoy the sunshine a bit more. Here are some of the photos I took:
Who needs a net for the basketball hoop? The train station (English Wikipedia) is in the background. Well, the glass pyramids are visible, anyway. The tracks themselves are underground.
I don’t think you are supposed to walk under the vines above, but considering there is a small dirt path there it looks like some people have tried. It is an interesting piece of nature, that’s for sure.
A handful of birdhouses (on the pole) with residential housing behind.
An area with outdoor seating – there is similar seating around other edges of the circle, making this a good place to hold a performance or poetry slam.
It is an interesting park; a bit bare at times, but that quality helps it look more natural.
