The Escale forestière walk
This 1 km asphalt trail can be combined with a visit to the Escale forestière (fee payable: forest-themed indoor and outdoor play areas). Start from the car park and venture into the forest where a wooden observation deck awaits you, and where you can take a break on one of the three benchs, while enjoying the calm of the forest. Further on, the Escale forestière invites you to discover the nature that lives in the forest in indoor spaces. Afterwards, a 15-minute film will take you to the territory of the Plaines de l'Escaut Nature Park. The outdoor sensory field invites you to play, and to take off your shoes to enjoy the 150m long Barefoot Trail. The visit ends with a 50m long footbridge, which takes you 16m high through the foliage. At the reception desk you will find information on the walks, on the missions of the Nature Park and delicious local products!
