Maaskant Park

Maaskant park

Originally built for trucks to carry deliveries in and out of the building, this road has been decommissioned for vehicles and repurposed as a greenway. Much like the world-renowned High Line Park, in New York, and Paris’s Promenade Plantee, Maaskant Park joins a modern history of elevated parks where the value of public space in our cities finds cities and developers in alignment with the provision of this civic good.

The park is named after one of the historic building’s architects, Huig Maaskant. The green oasis in the city offers an escape from the urban hustle and bustle.

Designed and developed by landscape architects Blooming Buildings in cooperation with plant designer Harry Pierik, it features over 500 different plant species, interspersed with brightly colored seating and a pétanque court.

Opening times:

08:00 to 20:00 May – October

09:00 to 18:00 November – April
