Slotervaart (Tuinstad Slotervaart) is a neighborhood in the far western part of Amsterdam, Netherlands. It was designed as a garden city (tuinstad). The area is named after the canal Slotervaart. The first houses were built in 1955.

Just outside the residential area there is a hospital, the Slotervaartziekenhuis (since 1976),[1] and the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI) (since 1979).[2]

Since 1990 Slotervaart was a part of the borough (stadsdeel) Slotervaart-Overtoomse Veld, which was renamed in 2004 as shortly Slotervaart. In 2010, however, this borough was merged with surrounding boroughs into the larger borough Amsterdam Nieuw-West.
