Oosterparkwijk


This district, including many street names of flowers and birds, consists of some private housing but mostly housing from housing corporations which were built in the 1920s and 30s. On the northeast side of the district, a substantial number of flats were built in the 1950s with maximally four stories. Some portions of the western part of the district were aimed at the middle-class but the largest portion formed a traditional work force area. This was built from an idealistic but also very practical vision to provide housing for the lower class. Elements of the characteristic building styles and the atmosphere of such Dutch city districts are still present. There are shopping facilities on the north west edge of the district. About 11.916 inhabitants live here.
