The Ypenburg consists of six neighborhoods: the Bras, Singels, Water Area, Bosweide, the Fens and Morning Meadow. The neighborhood names are partly derived from the former project names such as those created by the developer. Many new residents confuse their neighborhood name with the district name. Since the redistribution of The Hague in 2002, the correct format as follows: City = The Hague District = leidschenveen-ypenburg, Wijk = Ypenburg. The following are the neighborhoods and streets. Project Names like Boswijk and Waterwijk no longer fit into the subdivision, therefore the municipality of The Hague has decided the names to baptize respectively Bosweide and Water Area.Traffic and transport
