Nestled in the heart of verdant Belgian forests, the Parc Chlorophylle offers a truly unique experience that combines fun, learning, and a reconnection with nature in the most delightful way. It’s a hidden gem waiting to be discovered, perfect for families seeking both adventure and education.
The park is essentially a gigantic playground interspersed with fascinating educational panels providing insights into the wildlife that calls this forest home. It’s the perfect place for active kids to burn off some energy while engaging their minds in a fun, immersive learning environment. Parents, fear not, as there’s plenty for you to enjoy and learn from as well!
One of the standout features of the Parc Chlorophylle is the tree-top trail. This winding path takes you up and through the forest canopy, punctuated with exciting treehouses, each offering unique information and a different perspective of the forest life. Do note that while the park is generally stroller and wheelchair-friendly, the tree-top trail is not accessible.
The signs throughout the park are in French and Dutch, and many of the newer attractions (as well as some of the old ones) also provide explanations in English and German, ensuring that this educational journey is accessible to many.
So, pack your backpacks, put on your best walking shoes, and get ready for an unforgettable family day out at the Parc Chlorophylle. We can’t wait to hear about your adventures!
The park’s restaurant offers a panoramic view from its terrace, perfect for winding down after an active day out. However, please note that it’s only open on weekends and during the spring school holidays. For those who prefer to bring your own lunch, there are picnic tables next to the restaurant’s terrace.
Don’t forget to stop by the local bakery, Chez Marie – Epicerie, in the nearby village of Dochamps for waffles and more. Located at Rue du Vieux Frêne 11, 6960 Dochamps, it’s just a short detour from your forest adventure.
