This domain has been described as scruffy but I’m guessing it is by people who need complete perfection in their proper parks. I think it is great. Especially for smaller children. It is located right outside of Leuven and offers playgrounds, a pool, mini-golf, lots of really cool forts, a pedal bike city, paddle boats, a cafe, nature walks and more. To avoid the crowds go early in the morning when it opens and stay until lunch.

Know before you go
Make sure you have the right swimsuit! Also, there are costs for all the activities so just keep small bill cash on hand. It is fair priced but hey, at least the playground is free. The fort walking trails can be scary to younger children so just be prepared it may not be their thing.
The pool has a slide that is great for children 5 and up
Children have to be at least 3 years old to ride the bikes.
Electric boats are 6 years old and up
There is food and drink available but pack a picnic to save some bucks.
Parking in P2 will get you closest to the playground equipment.
Here’s a map of the domain, it’s in Flemish, good luck with that.
