A Guide to Children’s Outdoor Activities in Belgium

kids playing

Updated for 2022, this eBook lists over 550 places in Belgium that are great for children’s outdoor activities.

Looking for somewhere fun to take the children for some fresh air and exercise? Well, you have come to the right place for some great suggestions.

I have created an eBook with over 550 suggestions for children’s outdoor activities in Belgium. These include:

  • Children’s playgrounds
  • Forest play areas
  • Outdoor swimming
  • Children’s farms
  • Kayaking
  • Donkey rides
  • Mountain-biking
  • Alpaca farms
  • Adventure playgrounds
  • And many other activities.

The lists of activities are divided between the ten provinces of Belgium, and there’s a separate list of activities in the Brussels-Capital Region. All the locations are alphabetically listed. And each activity is hyperlinked to more information.

That’s not all! In addition, the eBook includes:

  • 100 children’s playgrounds in the city of Antwerp
  • 150 children’s playgrounds in the city of Brussels.

Clicking on the name of a playground brings you to its exact location on Google Maps.

  1. This is a nice service to visitors or inhabitants with children or grands. Maybe even babysitters or au pairs that need help on where to take their charges.

  2. Great post with wonderful information for those traveling with children! What does Belgium offer for those traveling with German Shepherds? … just kidding! ?

    1. Well it’s generally a very dog-friendly country Darren. When hiking I frequently come across a bowl of water outside a house for dogs.

      1. The burgers were actually quite tasty — I had them a few times.

        But when Olmense Zoo became Pakawi Park, they changed the restaurant menu. Which is a pity, because that was quite a high point for me 😉

  3. Belgium is a beautiful wonderland for kids of all ages. I especially like the playground forest in Bosland, Chlorophyll Park, and the river boats in Brussels. There are plenty of play and explore areas in the US, but the best are our many national parks. However, the Covid crisis is making travel difficult. Most folks are trying to make do with close-to-home adventures.

    1. Thanks for your positive comment Sharon. Over here too many of these activities are curtailed or reduced in size, particularly the organized ones. Thankfully, as you point out, there are many activities in the open air for individual families to enjoy in a safe environment. I wish you and your Californian friends safety and health in such an awful situation for your state, Sharon.
