The Singelpark is a 6.5 kilometre-long urban park laid out along the banks of the Leiden canals and is an initiative of the inhabitants of Leiden. Circular in shape, with no beginning or end, it is a park created by and for the people of Leiden.

The Friends of the Singelpark Foundation, LOLA Landscape Architects, Leiden city council and many inhabitants and organisations in the city will be working together over the next few years to link up the city’s various urban parks and canals to form one unique, compact park. De Meelfabriek is uniquely situated on this ring between the greenery of the Ankerpark and the Lakenpark and will soon form another beautiful link in the Singelpark chain with the completion of the Meelfabriek garden.
