Next to Europaboulevard is a slightly downcast playground with parking spaces behind it. We’d like to turn this into a beautiful park area.
Together with you, we want to turn the plot of land on Europaboulevard between Rooseveltlaan and President Kennedylaan into an inviting park in which residents young and old can rub shoulders and get to know each other. From 3-6 April, the urban districts of Amsterdam Zuidas and Zuid will pitch a tent on the site and every day, a programme will be organised with the aim of talking to as many of the residents in the surrounding area as possible.
From playground to park
The square is part of the Green Zuidas Plan, which sets out how we will boost the quality of greenery in Zuidas. Greenery is vital as it boosts quality of life in the city, creates a more pleasant atmosphere, cleans the air and helps to capture rainwater. The large trees that are currently on the square are in excellent health and will therefore be kept in place. However, there’s plenty of room for more trees, not to mention bushes, grass and flowers! Would you like a park where you can sit quietly with a good book, chat with a neighbour or have a nice picnic in the summer? Or should it be a playground where children can run, jump and play to their heart’s content? The choice is yours!
