Floriade 1982 was a garden festival held in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The second Amsterdam Floriade was from April 8 to October 10, 1982. It was the 9th edition of the World Horticultural Expo (AIPH) and the third held in the Netherlands. The Floriade was held at Gaasperpark, a recreation area surrounding the Gaasperplas lake in the neighborhood of Gaasperdam. The entrance to the Floriade was near the previously constructed Gaasperplas metro station. The Floriade included several structures including a planetarium and an observation tower, the latter of which was demolished.
After completion of the Floriade were removed almost all the additives, so that a simpler city park (the Gaasperpark) remained. This is in contrast to the previous exposition held in Amstelpark, where various parts of the Floriade 1972 exposition remained. The planetarium today houses a conference and meeting center. The interior furnishings of the planetarium were moved in 1988 to the Artis Planetarium.
