It is intended that the area between Eindhoven and Helmond, Gulbergen estate, will serve as a green recreational buffer between the urban centers Eindhoven and Helmond, now and in the future.
Gulbergen is described as a recreational landscape park with a strong green articulation. Several recreational facilities for day recreation will get, or already have, a place on the estate.
Gulbergen Estate, a total of 325 hectares, is broadly bordered by:
- The A270 Eindhoven-Helmond highway on the north side;
- The building ribbon "Het Broek" and the municipal border of Geldrop-Mierlo with Helmond on the east side;
- The Eindhovensch Canal on the south side;
- De Collse Hoefdijk and the existing industrial area Eeneind on the west side.
