The Old Docks north of the city are being revived. The Houtdok is the first dock to be revitalised with a 3 ha neighbourhood park: the Captain Zeppos park!

This park offers the ideal atmosphere to relax. You can go for a walk or a bike ride on the promenade along the restored quay walls and take a break on the lowered quays or the beach area. Unfortunately, swimming is not allowed.

I you feel like engaging in more activities in this green environment, there’s a sports area and an outdoor fitness area where you can spend your excess energy. And the smallest visitors will certainly enjoy the well-equipped playground.

The old port crane that has been dominating the western bank since 2019 will be equipped with an observation platform  giving visitors a magnificent view of the docks.
