Set in the heart of the "Maison du Parc Naturel des Plaines de l’Escaut" nature reserve, The Forest Halt is a genuine gateway to forest of Bon-Secours (2500 acres).

The "Explor’forêt" Interpretation Centre unveils the keys to the forest ecosystem (WapAventure notebooks available for 5-12 year-olds).

Take to the air to experience the diversity and riches of the of the "Plaines de l’Escaut" nature reserve with the film "Voyage en Ballon" (voyage in a hot air balloon).

You can opt for a variety of ways to discover the forest: scrabble around the humps and bumps of "La Pic’orée" at the edge of the forest with all the family, take off your shoes at the Barefoot Path or plunge into dense foliage on the "Promenoir des Cimes", a 50-metre contemporary architectural structure.

You'll also enjoy free access to a host of amenities after your tour :

Gather your family and go on an adventure with Salix! Equipped with a bag and its small equipment, you will have everything in hand to solve different challenges in the forest. (3 km loop, the Salix! bag is for sale for 10 € at the "Maison du Parc Naturel des Plaines de l’Escaut" reception centre. Duration: 2 hours. Activities adapted for children 6 and up.)

NEW: An orientation course around Bon-Secours allows you to explore the area and its forests in a fun way. Alone or with a team, place coordinates on your map and set off, compass in hand, to find the 10 tags. The course is about 5 km long. Duration: 2 hours. For everyone from the age of eight (children must be accompanied).

"La Flânerie de la Lisière", is a 1-km family walk suitable for pushchairs and reduced-mobility visitors, the path is equipped with didactic modules.
