Local area:
The popular Watergraafsmeer neighbourhood combines quiet, safe, child-friendly surroundings with a wide range of amenities. You have the choice of many different schools, and the shops on Middenweg, in the Oostpoort shopping centre and on Christiaan Huygensplein are all close by. Bar Wisse, Elsas Caf, Bar-Restaurant 1900 and Caf Clich are just a few of the lively establishments located within easy walking distance. This is an ideal neighbourhood with lots of green space: Frankendael Park (with two restaurants: Merkelbach and De Kas), Oosterpark and Flevopark are only a stones throw away. Accessibility is equally good: you can cycle to the Science Park, Amstel and Muiderpoort railway stations within 5 minutes, and there are also tram and bus connections right around the corner. In terms of sports facilities, alongside various local gyms you will also be living within easy reach of the Middenmeer Voorland sports park, with facilities for football, hockey, skating, tennis, baseball and more. The Jaap Eden skating rink also forms part of this park.
