Walking around Damme to the south side.

This section marks the southern part of the nature reserve "De Oude Stadswallen", between the Polderstraat and the Zuidervaartje (see also Dammesteenweg, Damse Vaart-West and Polderstraat). From this a first parcel is purchased in 1982; gradually more plots are acquired or taken into management. These are shallow water features, reed beds and swamp forest in the original canals and hay fields and meadows on the ramparts. The presence of, among other things, "marsh fern" and the carnivorous water plant "ordinary vesicle" prove the botanical value of the area. The area is managed by vzw Natuurpunt, which buys a few adjacent fields and meadows in order to be able to close the old defense belt around Damme again. The financing is done through the European project "Euregio Scheldemond / Cross-Border Creeks Area", with the support of the Provincial Nature Fund of West Flanders, the city of Damme and the Ministry of the Flemish Community. This nature reserve is accessed via a pedestrian bridge over the Zuidervaartje that connects to a municipal walking path that connects the Damse Vaart-Zuid with the Kerkstraat and the city center.

I hope that you enjoy it
