Vogelzang Park — Sheep… in the city?
Having diverse activities - social, recreational, therapeutic, landscape, and ecological - coexist in a single green space can be a challenge! Located at the bottom of a valley, Vogelzang Park, which was created by the Environment Brussels in 2019, stands up to the challenge with a dual objective: preserving a coherent landscape and enhancing the ecological corridor that integrates with the regional Green Promenade. The park has an integrated rainwater management approach as well as a meditation path developed in collaboration with the Erasmus Hospital. Garden Tales celebrates this beautiful space by offering three activities: guided meditation, a nature walk, or a stroll with the sheep. Pick your favorite!
Until the beginning of the 20th century, it was common to see sheep in the parks of the capital. Surprising? Not really, when you remember that they were responsible for mowing the vast lawns!
Brussels' sheep spend part of the year on the grounds behind Erasmus Hospital, managed by Environment Brussels. Come and learn more about ecological grazing with David the Shepherd, and end the morning with an 'urban transhumance' of these friendly and mischievous animals. A lovely moment for young and old!
