The Oosterparkbuurt is a neighborhood of Amsterdam, Netherlands. The neighborhood derives its name from the Oosterpark. Three of the main streets in the neighborhood - the Eerste Oosterparkstraat, Tweede Oosterparkstraat and Derde Oosterparkstraat - were also named after the park. The neighborhood was built late in the 19th century. Until World War II, the neighborhood was home to many working class Jews. During urban renewal operations of the 1970s and 1980s many of the original 19th-century housing was demolished and replaced.
