The city of Rotterdam is relatively green, but residents in the centre have a different experience. So, the mayor and municipal executive want to improve city life by adding even more green.
And they’re already doing it, reports NRC Handelsblad. There will be a new city park in the centre close to the Laurenskerk, a green spot at the Schouwburgplein, and the planted river bank at the Scheepvaartkwartier. Even a small patch of grass next to the Markthal has become a popular spot for employees on a break.
So, concludes the author of the article: the city council should resist the temptation to commercially exploit such green patches in the city and consider their popularity as an inspiration to continue greening the city up.
