Walking through the park called Rivierenhof, will make you discover several statues. Some of them are rather new and it is a delight to discover them, after not visiting the park for such a long time. I am talking about more then 10 years!
This statue is called Romeo and Juliet.
Fondest memory: Foundest thing is just forget the rush of the buzzzy day and linger around in this nice park.
PANORAMIC PICTURE! click on it to have the total view that consists out of 3 pictures of the statue, taken from a different angle.
I didn't had the chance to visit all the places in the park this afternoon. I hope to come back and take my bicycle with me. It is much more easy to get around because the park is not that small!
Here are signs of what you should see:
Rose garden ; Traffic park ;
Theatre ; Fairy tale hous ;
Arboretum ; Sterckhof (castle with the silver collection);
Mini golf (It has been years since I did that!)
Rivierenhof is a provincial park. It is located at Deurne. It has several entrances but not all are accessable by car. We parked the car at the Ruggeveldplaats.
If you drive over the highway from Turnhout, direction Breda, passing Wommelgem, you will pass the park at your right hand side after a few kilometers. When you have to take a huge bend to the right and you will be spotting the big appartment houses at the left hand site that is when you will pass the park.
Fondest memory: t is a green oasis in an urbanized area. A place of fresh air !
