You cannot live in Brussels and not be aware of the fact that the “Canal Zone” is in a period of tremendous change.
However, the up tower is creating such a fuss that one may forget that other projects get off the ground in the area.
I already told you about the park on the former Line 28 behind Tour & Taxis.
Now, there is one little green spot just in front of the latter which is coming back to life thanks to its temporary occupation by AlleeduKaai, a project organizing there several activities (dance, skateboard lessons, bicycle workshops,…).
And there is grass (a little bit) (more you can find in a 2 km range) and children playing : a nice and peculiar stop on a bicycle ride along the canal or after visiting an exhibition at Tour&Taxis.
But the Brussels-Capital Region is planning to develop this zone further than that.
If you are interested in learning more about the project and/or giving your input, a participating visit is organized on 14/03/2015 from 14.00.
