Remember to give other visitors the chance to admire the installation from the viewing platform, by limiting the time you spend on the platform on busy days.

Accessibility - provincial park

The car park of the provincial park is easy to reach by car, bus and bike.

Parking area, Palingbeekstraat 18, 8902 Zillebeke

Adjacent to this large parking area at the entrance to the park, you will find a cafeteria with public toilet facilities. There is also a bike rack and a limited number of parking spaces for buses. It is advisable to reserve a bus space in advance.

Near this parking lot you can also find the information point. From Monday to Sunday you are welcome here with all your question between 9am and 5pm. Here you can also purchase the book The making of or become godfather or godmother of the project.

Users of GPS systems can also use the following coordinates to reach the parking lot as the address seems to be unknown to some GPS systems. 50°48’50.41N  , 2°55’13.02”O.

Parking, Vaartstraat 7, 8902 Zillebeke

There is a second parking area at the visitors centre in the provincial park. From here, it is a 30-minute walk to reach the installation.

Accessibility - land-art installation

The walk around the installation takes place over grassed tracks, wooden walkways and hardened paths. This means that during wet weather part of the route can be muddy and slippery. The path leading directly to the viewing platform is hardened and therefore always easily accessible.

The part of the route where you can listen to war poetry involves climbing a flight of stairs. This means that wheelchair and buggy users will need to go back they way they came, once they arrive at these stairs. Regrettably, the nature of the ground makes it infeasible to find an alternative solution.
