We are an Australian family of four (son 8 & daughter 10) living in the Utrecht, in the centre of The Netherlands. We love to travel and see this as a nice way of being part of a community of families sharing their spaces with each other.

Wittevrouwen, Utrecht

North of center

In the northeast of the city, this pretty residential district is bordered by public parks and canals. Just a short drive or a 15-20 minute walk from the museums, restaurants and sights of the city itself, Wittevrouwen is close to Grift Park, which has an ice skating rink, public art and a petting zoo to keep the kids occupied.
