Provincial domain Kessel-Lo offers playgrounds for all ages, a few farm animals, mini cars and a heated swimming pool in the summer

Practical stuff


The playgrounds are for all ages. Right now the large playground that had also a toddler section is closed for renovation. The one that is open is more like a forest playground

It is a pretty nice walk around the lake

There are a few farm animals too, like goats and donkeys – also some wooden ones!

There is also a small water playground, perfect for warmer days

There’s a heated outdoor swimming pool for summer. It opens 01.05-15.09 and it is paid. You need to reserve and have your ID card with you. More details here

There are picnic tables everywhere (covered tables next to the lake and also next to a playground)

There are mini cars next to parking 2. You can play mini golf, petanque, roller blade and skate. More details here
