Today we had a family day from work at Plankendael in Mechelen. Even though passing by regularly and having heard so often that it is way nicer than the associated Zoo in Antwerp , which is 150 years old and squeezed in the historic city center. In Plankendael however they lack no space and combine large animal spaces with fun playgrounds. Additionally there's a great amount of storks living freely in the park, often seen on the streetlights in the neighbouring towns as well.
