From Zoo to South

City walk in the South park ( Zuidpark ) area… now and then

The south site in Ghent is on the verge of a vibrant future with the realization of a brandnew city office. But the past of this neighbourhood is well worth exploring as well. Walk through almost 200 years of turbulent history.

More about this tour

The South Park (Zuidpark) of Ghent has had it all: prosperity, decline and resurrection.
