Westbroekpark is one of the most beautiful parks in The Hague. The park has large playing fields, ponds and waterways. The detached groups of trees and the picturesque vistas make it reminiscent of an English park. Westbroekpark is best known for its beautiful rose garden: the International Rosarium, which was built in 1960. Here, 20,000 rose bushes bloom on about 300 beds between June and the end of October. They are the newest varieties that are bred by growers from all over the world and are sent in voluntarily. A Wokrestaurant and the Waterkant tea room are located in the Westbroekpark.
The Westbroekpark is located in the Scheveningen district. The park is easily accessible by car, public transport and bicycle. The main entrance to the Westbroekpark is on the Kapelweg. A bicycle shed is available here. There is also an entrance to the park on Cremerweg. The Westbroekpark is easily accessible from the center with tram 9 in the direction of Scheveningen. Bus 21 also runs along Westbroekpark towards the seaside resort of The Hague.
By car, follow the signs for Scheveningen Bad from the highway until you arrive at the Nieuwe Parklaan. You reach the main entrance via the Nieuwe Duinweg side street. Parking is available at Kapelweg.
