THE GREEN LINKS

Green links

The City of Brussels is developing a green network that links green spaces, paths, footpaths, cycle and pedestrian routes and the existing regional green/blue network. This initiative requires a mapping of the paths and footpaths as well as identifying connection opportunities to the existing networks. The first zone will be completed in Haren before being extended to other parts of the territory. The public will be kept informed by awareness-raising actions and publications.
