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. In March 2022, the first stones were laid of this long path over the central axis of the LBSP. The first part, along the Zernikedreef, the Trambaan and the Sylviusweg, is now ready and in full use.

Based on the shared desire for a green, healthy and safe park, cyclists and pedestrians on the Hartlijn have priority over other traffic. To emphasize this, the path has a striking, colorful appearance. It is also accompanied by an impressive plant strip with 21 species of medicinal officinales.
