From now on, the puppies have a separate playground at Gentbrugges Meersen. The dog off-leash area was upgraded including an adventure area.
The existing dog off-leash meadow in Gentbrugges Meersen, next to the E17 viaduct near Mersemhof, has been expanded with a special area for puppies and small dogs.
A separate Adventure Zone was also created. Instead of just earth or grass like other free-range grasslands, there are trees and plants. There are now 28 dog off-leash areas spread across Ghent.
The new zones came about after a survey among dog owners in the area. For example, dogs can now run free in a total area of one hectare. In the rest of Gentbrugse Meersen, four-legged friends are welcome, but in order not to disturb nature, they are allowed only on a leash.
