Allotment sites are worth a visit. Here some examples.

The Belgian allotments

Allotment site Orleans Toren in AarschotAllotment site Orleans Toren in Aarschot

This project is very young; it opened in 2017 and is located near the city centre of Aarschot. Near the site you have a historical defence tower ‘Orleanstoren’.
Apart from being an allotment garden it is also a natural community space available to everyone.
The city governs the gardens with a local board of people active in the gardens or in local garden federations. The city council wishes to combine allotment gardens with local recreational options for cyclists and hikers.
