A bicycle and pedestrian path throughout the whole park
The Hartlijn is the center of the park that connects all central places.


With the Hartlijn, a joint project of the municipality of Leiden and Leiden University, the infrastructure of the park will be significantly improved. The first stones were laid in March 2022. The first part of this path, along the Zernikedreef, the Trambaan and the Sylviusweg, will be completed in the summer of 2022.

Cyclists and pedestrians on the Hartlijn will have priority over other traffic in the new situation. The path has a unique appearance because of the use of color and a strip of medicinal planting. Along the path there will be attractive places to stay, such as benches where one can have lunch.

Up-to-date information about road works can be found in the project app of contractor BAM. Download the free app 'BAM infra projects' for up-to-date information, planning and diversion routes.
