Ontwerp   Abraham van der Hart
Opdrachtgever   Gemeente Amsterdam
Aangelegd   1812

Dit oudste park van Amsterdam werd in 1812 opengesteld voor publiek. Op het deel waar nu de sportvelden liggen, stond aanvankelijk de Parkzaal, een voorloper van het Concert-gebduw, en later de Parkschouwburg. Het park is vernoemd naar de in 1897 overleden joodse bankier en filantroop A.C. Wertheim (1832-1897). Bij het monument 'Nooit meer Auschwitz' van Jan Wolkers wordt jaarlijks rond 27 januari de Auschwitz-herdenking gehouden.

Laid out   1812

This oldest park in Amsterdam was opened to the public in 1812. The section where the sports fields are currently located initially accommodated the Parkzaal, a predecessor to the Concertgebouw (concert hall) and later the Parkschouwburg (theatre). The park is named after the Jewish banker and philanthropist A.C. Wertheim (1832-1897), who died in 1897. The Auschwitz-memorial is held annually around January 27th at the monument 'Nooit meer Auschwitz' (Auschwitz never again) by Jan Wolkers.
