Charming piece of social history
Sep 2017
Magnificently conserved company housing. Eraliest part beautifully landscpaed (same landscape architect as Vondelpark Amsterdam) dates from 1890s. Second and largest part from 1920’s is perfect example of Amsterdam school (art deco) of architecture: geometric lines in street plan, roofs, front doors, windows. Colours from that time. Beautifully laid out in geometric grid around large rectangular pond. Latest addition in 1960, not intersting.
Total is national monument. Look at the houses and be amazed. The setup promoted social interaction and contriol, and all (even on the upper levels in the 1920s part) had gardens to relax and grow veggies.
10 minutes walking from the historic center of Delft, and get immersed in a relaxing atmosphere from days gone by.
Prepare for the visit by reading the amazing story of Jacques and Agneta (namegiver) Van Marken, a remarkable couple that founded the largest industry in Delft. (Yeast and salad oil). Read how they shaped modern Delft, industrially and socially.

a nice park, a pity that the surrounding is so industrial (and you hear that)
Oct 2016 • Couples
The park is nice, with manicured lawns, statues, a fountain and benches (but some maintenance is lacking in that department). The site looks so tranquile and quiet, but it is not unfortunately the noise from neigboring industry is pervasive.

Utilitarian project

Unique example of an old-fashioned patriarchic project. A Captain of Industry wanting to control the lives of his workers in every respect, including their housing. Beautiful archictecture.

about going back in time
Feb 2016 • Family
het agneta park, we had an office there, we went there in the years back from now for music in the Tent. the most touching is the silence, the place which is kept away from the city noises. the small cafe on the corner, the old KNGSF pension office, the buildings in the park, the houses, they all fit in this place totally back in time. it was winter, it was rainy, no snow. still you close your eyes and one is back home

Escape to tranquility and enjoy the reminders of a bygone era.
Jun 2015 • Couples
It was extremely hot and busy in Delft centre, so we walked from the rail station past the building site and the windmill to Agnetapark and found a well-preserved example of an industrial social housing project from the 1800's with a park and working fountain - and it was deserted apart from a couple of fishermen and a solitary dogwalker. The houses within the park were noticeably better maintained and tidier than in nearby streets. We sauntered back to the middle of town along the pleasant and peaceful banks of the Rijn-Schiekannal until we came to the Koepoort Brug and returned to the hustle and bustle.

Industrial historic site
Jun 2014 • Solo
This area of Delft used to be the property of the nearby factory. The houses built here were for the people working in the factory and their families. As you walk around the park and the houses you have a feeling of being submerged in another time. It is nice to see that the inhabitants are doing what they can to preserve this feeling. There is a local cafe at this park where you can sit down to enjoy some tea or coffee.

Just memory lane park
Dec 2012 • Friends
As a memory lane park it is a small wonder, as a park for viewers, well it is in a part of the city of Delft not so known, the Hof van Delft part, was the farmer place before, transformed in 1900 to a living and working area. a masons workshop is still there for generations, the rest has all left because of what they call progress. It is a small town within the city of Delft with a typical character not found anywhere else.
