Passchendaele Memorial Gardens
The Passchendaele Memorial Park combines recreation and the experience of nature at its purest with remembrance of the Battle of Passendale. Seven remembrance gardens have been laid out in the park, each in the symbolic form of a poppy. At the request of the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917, each garden has been designed by one of the nations that took part in the battle. The designs make use of modern art, poetry and the plants/vegetation associated with the country in question.
The different gardens will be inaugurated during the forthcoming commemorative period. After a visit to the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917, you can walk through the now peaceful park to contemplate the horror and misery of the First World War. There are also two themed walking routes that start in the park and lead to either Tyne Cot Cemetery or Polygon Wood. The park is likewise the starting point for a cycle route that links all the WWI heritage sites in Zonnebeke.
