A walk through scenic Rotterdam, the Netherlands, alongside river Maas and to park Schoonoord

This afternoon I made a walk nearby where I live. First alongside river Maas and Erasmus Bridge, then via an older part of Rotterdam, called Scheepvaartkwartier, to a very nice little park, called Schoonoord, where an old colleague of mine,Hans Slappendel lives with Annette.
I put some effort in the comments, I hope it will be helpful to get a rough idea on the beauty of my city, where I was born and lived a major part of my life. Enjoy

Alongside river Maas (1 at plan). It's called Maasboulevard and it gives breathtaking views of the river and the bridges. As it's also used as a main traffic through road it never became what planners thought of it (few people). Now there will be placed a 'beach' real sand, during the summer period

This is the so called Kop van Zuid, old industrial part of Rotterdam, which became obsolete and is now reused , with keeping up some of the industrial architecture, mainly from last century. 
Las Palmas used to be a warehouse, now it's mainly used for exhibitions.
