Spread over a massive 60 acres, Goffertpark has been delighting the residents of Nijmegen since it was first opened in 1939. This public park features a host of recreational facilities, including a football stadium and an open-air theater. With its grassy open spaces and woodlands, the park itself is a delightful place to explore, but is best known as a venue for major concerts featuring international music legends. While such concerts attract an eclectic audience, football matches at the park's NEC stadium also draw in throngs of avid sports fans. Even when no events are scheduled, the park remains a popular local haunt, and a place to escape to with family and friends.
