What used to be a rail track and depot is now a days a park area with high standard of public space and program! When in Antwerp, do visite the Spoor Park Noord!!
A great value for the noord (north) district of Antwerp. Nice (green / blue) public spaces and programs do rise the quality of living and real estate prices.
