On the grounds of De Meer is a residential area with links to the past. Stadion De Meer has been the home of Ajax for 62 years. In 1996 the stadium moved to make room for a residential area where many historical traces can be found. Street names refer to the stadiums where Ajax played legendary games and there are bridges named after Ajax players from the 1970s. While the stadium has disappeared, the entire district is an ode to the club, The Esplanade in particular.
