Sint-Niklaas: from a congested town square to a green oasis

Sint-Niklaas is a modern city in the East of Flanders, Belgium. With more than 78.000 inhabitants it counts as the second biggest city of the region. Next to that, Sint-Niklaas features Belgium’s biggest square with 3.19 hectares.

Transforming Sint-Niklaas

Infrastructural improvements will start in 2023 to transform Niklaas’s square (Grote Markt) into a beautiful, welcoming location. In order to achieve this, a lot of trees will be planted and a traffic filter will be installed on the access routes toward the town square. As a result, the car park under the town square will only be accessible from the north of the city.
