EGG HUNTING IN WOLVENDAEL

The Wolvendael park is a park of 18 ha (44 acres), located in the most posh municipality of Brussels, Uccle.This park has the originality of many landscapes. Its varied morphology, slopes, gully, trees green colors, blue and red, offer relaxation and discovery and there is also a huge playground for children and an open air theater and sculptures.

I went there on Easter Sunday because Uccle had organized an Easter egg hunting in this park !  The chocolate eggs were offered by the municipality.  



Some houses opposite the park



The park was closed to hide the eggs and people gathered in front of the entrance gate, long before the opening at 3 pm sharp !



and then they all stormed inside



looking for eggs in the bushes under the trees and each possible place



A man threw little eggs in a place under the swings and 8 children at once were allowed to go inside and pick them up. The playgrounds were full and there also was a waffle stand and a little restaurant. The red cross (here yellow) was there too in case of an accident.



There was such a lot of space to play



The police too had a discreet eye in case somebody behaved badly.



The roots of the huge trees were an ideal hiding place









and when all eggs had disappeared, it was time to sit down and eat them !

I hope there were enough eggs for all the children otherwise there would be tears and disappointment all round.

As there are no photos of the egg you found, I guess you did not find one.

That park is so big you would need radar to find the eggs.

Eggs-citing! I'm sure the children had fun, and I hope you found a chocolate egg.
