indoor baths and fine outdoor activities
When I trained for my triathlon, I was a regular guest at the Wezenberg Olympic swimming pool, opposite Louise Marie. The swimming pool organises swimming lessons for children between 5 and 12 years old, which is interesting for young families in Louise Marie. If you prefer a more recreational swimming pool, the Groenenhoek swimming pool is less than 4 kilometres from Louise Marie.
Another fine activity for children is the mini golf course in Wilrijk. I admit: I like to do that from time to time. It’s always fun. And Wilrijk is only 1.5 km from Louise Marie.
For outdoor sports you can go to the Wilrijkse plein sports centre. There you can do different team sports such as rugby, netball, football and hockey. You will also find a Finnish running track and a calisthenics park if you prefer getting fit in the open air. A mini football field can be found in Hof van Leysen – a cosy family park that is more towards the centre, but still within walking distance of Louise Marie.
