The domain of Hofstade is a sports and recreational center located in the Flemish Brabant in Belgium. Spread over 160 hectares, the site includes 2 lakes surrounded by a large sandy beach, a playground, natural spaces and a few restaurants. Very popular in the 1920s, the site was closed during the Second World War then re-opened.

An open-air swimming pool was inaugurated in 1939, built by Charles Van Nueten. It is one of the largest of the time, with 100m by 50m and 1.6m deep. This pool was decommissioned around 1990 and has since been abandoned, while the rest of the center stays open to the public.

  1. Je me souviens de cet endroit où mes parents m’emenaient de temps en temps. En revanche tu t’es concentré sur la piscne seulement. Dans mes tres vieux souvenirs il y avait également des airs de jeux pour enfants et plein d’autres choses.
    Tu n’as rien vu de tout cela ?

    1. En effet, c’est un espace immense avec des aires de jeu et autres espaces pour les visiteurs. Mais cette piscine est la seule attraction laissée à l’abandon du site, d’après ce que j’ai pu voir. 😉
