Samuel Sarphati was a prominent 19th-century doctor, social reformer and a proud member of the Amsterdam Jewish community. He dreamed of creating affordable housing for the working class of the city and improved sanitation conditions by implementing a system of garbage collection. He also made plans for the park that now bears his name although it was only completed roughly 20 years after his death. Today it’s a popular place for sunbathers, picnickers and families with children and many youngsters camp out near the monument to the famous doctor that’s surrounded by a fountain and lots of flowers.
