The area was made up of farmlands and trees dominated the area. The trees are in the squares today. Urban development replaced much of the farmlands. Today, much of the municipality is urbanized while the businesses are along its main roads. Many of the trees are aligned with the streets and in squares. A few tracts of hilly grasslands lie to the east.

Nea Ionia has schools, lyceums, gymnasia, banks, a post office and squares (plateies).
