Location and accessibility
Leidsche Rijn is located within a 15-minute bike ride of Utrecht city centre. Around 80,000 people currently living in this new part of the city, but this will increase to 100,000 residents in the future. In recent years, a lot of hard work has gone into transforming the bustling centre of Leidsche Rijn into a second city centre for Utrecht.
Greenville is located in the centre of Leidsche Rijn, within walking distance of shops, hospitality establishments and other facilities. But the historical city centre of Utrecht is also close by: you can reach ‘de Neude’ within 15 minutes by bike. The NS station Leidsche Rijn Centrum is located within walking distance of Greenville, as is the bus station. This means you can reach Utrecht Centraal Station within just a few minutes. But Leidsche Rijn is also easy to access by car: due to its central location, and the proximity of the A2 and A12 highways, you can reach Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Den Bosch within 45 minutes.
Plenty of things to do
There are plenty of things to do in the centre of Leidsche Rijn. For instance, there are many shops, a supermarket and various restaurants, cosy cafés and trendy coffee shops. The shopping centre opened its doors in May 2018. But many options are also available outside the centre of Leidsche Rijn. The Soia beach hut is close by, as is the pub run by the Maximus brewery. You can also catch a movie at the Cinemec cinema, which is within a few minutes’ walk of Greenville.
There are also many sports facilities, which include the nearby located Fit For Free, the Sportcampus and Sportpark Paperclip. Or do you prefer nature?
