Vrijbroekpark - the green paradise of Mechelen in Belgium

The enchanting green oasis, close to Mechelen, is a favorite place to relax and spend wonderful time outdoors. This incredible and extensive park, set on an area of 50 hectares, offers exceptional recreational conditions for adults and children, as well as for active sport on a variety of sports terrains. In the future there will be a significant expansion of the park by joining more land.

Although the park is in the city of Mechelen, Provinciaal Groendomein Vrijbroekpark is owned by the province of Antwerp. The park is free accessible all year round. Various areas for sports, recreation and walking are set in the park. There are several flower gardens, such as the rose garden with over 100 types of roses, the lake of lilies, ecotooptuin, verkeerstuin. There are many grounds for football, tennis courts, for a basketball, cricket and grass hockey. The great lake, where lovers of fishing can indulge in their hobby and complete relaxation, should be especially noted. In the park area you can stay in 'T Park Brasserie and the Vrijbroekhof Café with an open-air terrace. The park is very well-managed and has good enough signs for easy orientation. A bust of Albert Nobels (1871-1931) by Ernest Wijnants is very close to the entrance to the park.
