Store: Expansion

Plazas and Promenades is the 11th expansion pack for Cities: Skylines. It was announced on 2022-08-22[1] and was released on 2022-09-14[2] alongside the Seaside Resorts and Mid-Century Modern CCPs, as well as the Shoreline Radio and Paradise Radio music pack DLCs.

Expansion features[edit | edit source]

The new expansion provides infrastructure focused on pedestrians, with things such as pedestrian streets, car free areas, and more plazas.


Pedestrian Streets: Citizens can walk freely on pedestrian-only streets. Players can place them in their city like any other road and create new green city centers free of most vehicles and noise pollution.

Pedestrian Zones and new Policies: Players can activate three zone-specific policies for city including:

Slow Driving.png Slow Driving: all roads in the pedestrian zone, except highways, get a speed limit of 20 miles/hour.

Sugar Ban.png Sugar Ban: increases the average lifespan of citizens in the pedestrian zone but decreases their happiness.

Street Music.png Street Music: increases happiness and noise pollution in pedestrian commercial zones.

Deliver Everything.png Deliver Everything: all buildings within area get cargo and garbage service via service points even if not on pedestrian roads.

District Specialization: There's 3 new wall-to-wall district specializations: offices, high-density residential areas, and high-density commercial zones. Setting a specialization on a district affects all zoned squares in that district that will spawn buildings with a different visual appearance and a gameplay effect. Each specialization features 24 new modern wall-to-wall buildings.

City service buildings: Connect service buildings to pedestrian zones to match their visual style and provide services that contribute to good happiness values (one of the main metrics of a successful pedestrian zone).

Achievements: Three new achievements.

  • Garbage Collection Issues
  • The Sweetest City
  • Very Focused

Sandstone[edit | edit source]


The 1.15.1 patch also added six more roads for users with both Plazas and Promenades and Snowfall, so pedestrian roads can have tram tracks. There are small and large pedestrian roads with tram tracks in each of the three variations. Users who have both expansions will have these available to use in their cities.
