The Flower Plaza is an unlockable pedestrian area plaza from the Cities: Skylines Parks and Plazas DLC.

Unlocking the Flower Plaza requires you to:

  • Have a pedestrian area with a land value bonus of ₡300/cell
  • Reach the Tiny Town milestone (360 – 1,500 population, depending on the map)

Once that’s accomplished, you’ll be able to build flower plazas from the Pedestrian Area Plazas tab of the Parks & Plazas menu for ₡2,500 each.

You can check your progress by clicking on the name of the pedestrian area on the map to bring up its info panel, and then clicking on the Unlocking tab.

And here’s a step-by-step guide on how to get your pedestrian area started and increase its land value.

Step #1: Paint a Pedestrian Area

Go to the Districts and Areas menu and select the Paint Pedestrian Area too.

Draw over the part of the map you want to include.

Step #2: Place a Service Point

Each pedestrian area requires at least one service point in order to function. Service points allow buildings to receive cargo and get garbage collected, despite being on pedestrian-only streets.

The service point itself needs to be connected to your city’s road network via a regular (non-pedestrian) road.

Build one from the Pedestrian Areas tab of the Parks and Plazas menu.

Step #3: Build Pedestrian Streets

You’ll find various pedestrian-only streets in the Pedestrian Areas tab of both the Parks & Plazas menu and the Roads menu.

Step #4: Raise the Land Value

From there, it’s up to you what you’d like your pedestrian area to function as. You may zone whichever type of growable buildings (residential, industrial, commercial, or office) as you please.

To get the flower plaza, however, you’ll want to make sure that your pedestrian area has good land value.

You increase land value through the following:

1. Services

Make sure your area is adequately covered by essential services (water, power, and garbage collection), as well as by the fire and police departments.

2. Leisure

The most straightforward way to boost land value is by adding parks and plazas.

In the Pedestrian Area Plazas tab you’ll find a variety of assets (that do not require unlocking) from the DLC. Of course you can also use the rest of the park and plaza buildings from the base game and other DLCs.

3. Avoiding Ground and Noise Pollution

Both ground and noise pollution lower land value.

Keep your pedestrian area away from pollution generating buildings such as garbage facilities and “dirty” energy plants (oil and coal).

Also be very careful when placing unique buildings, as some of these produce a lot of noise as well.
