Lewenborg is a green district in the east of the city. The district is located where the city meets the countryside and the street names are all named after shipping terms. Nevertheless, the streets Mooiland, Waterland and Zonland are exceptions to this rule, because they were constructed ecologically. The houses are built from sustainable materials, with solar panels on the roofs and the waste water is purified. Nature and recreation are also located around the corner from the Lewenborg district. On the eastern edge is Kardinge, an area with the largest sports centre in the north of the Netherlands, with a swimming pool, ice rink, climbing centre, pitch and putt, and a mountain bike track. There is even more greenery north of Lewenborg, in and round the village of Noorddijk. Even though the village is right beside the city, it still has the feel of a true Groningen village. The church tower has an exceptional commemorative stone and the Noordermolen (windmill) to the east of the village is one of the few functioning land reclamation windmills remaining.
