In the arboretum, one can have a wonderful walk under a diverse foliage.

As is fitting for a woodland garden, a tree collection with 140 species can be found here. Where in the past it was mainly used by scientists, the arboretum of 8.5 hectare in size is accessible for hikers since 2010.

Across the road, Koekelare forest seamlessly connects to it. A signposted path takes you along the most beautiful places.
