Just outside Ghent’s ring-road is the city's nature reserve 'Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen'.
This unique open landscape comprises more than 220 ha of wet grassland full of ditches and streams. Tens of thousands of birds come to lay their eggs there every year to ensure the continued existence of their species. Don’t forget your binoculars!
Along Meerskantpad you will find special signage for wheelchair users and persons with visual impairments.
The visitor centre is a model of sustainability.
