The project

In November 2015, the Rotterdam public transport company, RET, joined schoolchildren from the region in planting the first trees in the Waalbos. The RET ‘passengers’ forest’ was the start of the development of the Waalbos. Two hectares of forest has been planted in the passengers’ forest, which means a total of around 9,000 trees.

There is full public access to the Waalbos. It is attractive to walkers and there is a cycle path that links up with the regional cycle routes.
