Yes, there is still a nature area to visit in the city: a beautiful green spot is the area ‘The Bourgoyen’. I love to go there for a run or a summer walk in order to have some healthy exercise and to enjoy the beauty that nature still has to offer. You can enjoy the wildlife this region has to offer around a big lake: goose, ducks, plants and a series of birds.
Once in a while you meet a dog running loose. Unfortunately I’m not so keen on them but if I encounter one it definitely helps to bring my running speed to the next level.
This green area is of course the hotspot for bird spotters and photographers but also a place for romantic couples or young families with children to relax and spend their Sunday afternoons. After a refreshing energy walk you can cool down with a refreshment in the bar where you can read some background info about the Bourgoyen and its fauna & flora history.
