A Walk in the park, part 3

In july I made a blogpost named 'a walk in the park'. Last week,
at one of the last sunny days of the year we went again.

 Gaius Julius Civilis, an ancient hero who led the Batavians to revolt against the Romans
 during the 1st-century lived here.

The Belvedere was built in the 15 century as a watchtower.
Nowadays it functions as a fancy restaurant. The view over the river is magnificent

De Waalbrug (bridge over the river Waal)

In 1944 over this river and bridge the liberators came to free Nijmegen.
