I love to run in the Vrijbroekpark (Free Swamp Park) in Mechelen which spans over some 80 acres and is open for the public from sunrise to sunset. It has a 3.3 kilometers (2 miles) runners route with distance indications every 100 meters. Additionally, the track around the beautiful roses garden is some 600 meters (without distance signs). It is not uncommon to see a few squirrels or a rabbit in the park, especially when you run early in the morning.
