FONDATION FELON SOLVAY PARK - Our World

Only a few km far from home we have a beautiful park, the Solvay park, with its beautiful castle.
The park is huge, 91 ha (227 acres)

A part of it contains the "Fondation Felon"



where the Belgian artist Jean-Michel Folon put more than five hundred works, in the farm of the castle of La Hulpe. This charming and characteristic building in the middle of the marvellous Solvay Park is home to more than forty years of creation.

But we didn't visit the foundation, for that the weather was too sunny, we just walked around the farm through the woods and fields.



Everything looked so green and fresh ! It's spring !







On the flat areas of the park a kite competition took place and we watched them flying.



We walked inside the farm and looked at the old stables and coaches which were standing there.



Lots of people had the same idea as we had and after our long walk we had a drink in the part of the farm which has been converted to a restaurant.



On our way back we watched the ducks and huge carps (real monsters) and the atelier where children built little kites.

What a wonderful park. I'm glad you stayed outdoors. You can always go back to see the inside on a cold or rainy day.

What an interesting place. Carp are amazing, they get to be so huge.

You must feel so much at home visiting all these places. You must have visited them before living there.
I like revisiting places I've been to and seeing how they change them.
The wax museum for instance must have a lot more to see.

Thank you for this lovely post about this park and farm. The animals look healthy enough, so no need to give them cod liver oil! ;)

That was a fun tour of the green park lands and farm and pond, and you can look forward to doing the interior tour and see the art works another time.
