Located on the southeast side of the Amsterdam metropolitan area, Oost-Watergraafsmeer is among the city’s lowest lying areas, consisting mainly of polders, areas reclaimed from the sea and protected by dikes. The district is known for its many green areas, including the expansive Oosterpark. Watergraafsmeer is known for its many family-friendly neighbourhoods and its village-like atmosphere in smaller subdivisions such as Betondorp, Amsteldorp, Tuindorp Park and the Lake. Despite its location on city’s outskirts, the neighbourhood is full of attractions, including the Jaap Eden Baan ice rink that includes a speed skating lane and an ice hockey stadium.
