Practical & Itineraries
As the park is a not that close to the centre the best is to take your car to visit the land art installation. There are two large car parks close to it. Parking and admission is free.
There is no charge for admission to the land art installation and the provincial park. The park can be visited freely by individual visitors and small groups. Groups coming by coach are advised to book via the website. The entire walk takes about one hour. However, from the car park you can also walk directly to the observation bridge via the paved path. In that case,the visit should take about 30 minutes. Naturally, every visitor wants to view the installation from the observation bridge. On busy days, please limit your time on the bridge so that everyone gets the opportunity to do so.
There is a large car park at the entrance to the park. There is space for cars and coaches. There are also toilets at the car park and there is a cafeteria nearby.
Address: Palingbeekstraat 18, 8902 Zillebeke
There will also be a second car park at the Palingbeek
Park’s visitor centre. From there, it is a 30-minute walk to the installation.
Address: Vaartstraat 7, 8902 Zillebeke
The walk runs through the provincial park via grassy paths, wooden boardwalks, and paved paths. Please take into account that in rainy weather the ground can get wet and muddy. The path running directly to the observation point is entirely paved.
The part of the route where you can listen to war poetry involves climbing a flight of stairs. This means that wheelchair and buggy users will need to go back the way they came. The nature of the ground means that it is not feasible to find an alternative solution.
