Green Hub in Oegstgeest

Country Estate New Rhijngeest, Oegstgeest, NL

The geometrical center of the new office and residential area in Oegstgeest – connecting the new urban quarter in the north to the university area in the south.

The park has an “open” character as it has multiple connections to the existing road structure and therefore can be easily accessed. Regional cycle- and footpaths cross the park, allowing visitors to experience a green and lush oasis that is typical for Oegstgeest.

In the core of the park, you can take a stroll in the romantic hedge garden, play in the children’s area, relax at the café, or picnic in the vast lawns. The green oasis is surrounded by waterways that are connected to the river Oude Rijn. The nature-friendly shores attract all kinds of fish, birds, insects and unique types of plants and enrich the area’s natural diversity. The existing woods, solitary groups of trees and the remains of old park lanes are transformed into estate-like decor for the surrounding development.
