Oosterflank is a so-called ‘cauliflower district’ built in the 1980s with many ground-level homes. It is a real, green family neighborhood where several schools can be found. A real green pearl is the neighborhood park Semiramispark. Behind this park on the northern edge is the large Alexandrium shopping center with the intercity station. There are 3 metro stations on the west side of the district, so you can easily reach the center of Rotterdam.
