Martin Luther King Park

Martin Luther King Park is located at the Amstel River in the south of Amsterdam. Early in the 20th century, city architect J. P. Berlage designed Plan Zuid (Plan South), the neighborhood including green, that was considered to be healthy for citizens.   The city park was established in the 30's, as an employment project for people who lost their jobs during the crisis. It openend for public in 1936 and was called Amstelpark in 1949. It was renamed in 1968 to honor Martin Luther King after his assassination. The park is being redesigned in 2018-2019, a lot of new trees are being planted. Thanks to the municipality of Amsterdam Zuid and the visitors of the park, the little statue was placed on a pedestal made of City Wood, a tree from Amsterdam.
