Ongoing projects

More green spaces

Rotterdam as a green city is an attractive and resilient city where people love to live, work and relax. Greenification is an important municipal priority. It brings people together, inspires them to go out and explore and creates healthier living conditions. Joining hands to improve the green quality of the neighbourhood contributes to the people's resilience and to the quality of life in the neighbourhood.

In and around Rotterdam we have a myriad of wildlife habitats and places of natural beauty to enjoy. They range from large parks to concealed gardens in courtyards and on roofs, from nature conservation areas in the city to small beaches by the waterside and from monumental trees to baby trees. Rotterdam is greener than you think, but there is always room for improvement. Together with the people of Rotterdam, we will give the city what it deserves: an even greener appearance. We will actively involve citizens in creating more green spaces, ensuring that everyone is inspired, motivated and eager to get started.
