The Ryckevelde Park, whose woods are managed by ANIMAL "Bos en Groen", lies on the arid, sandy soil to the south of the Zwin Region. "Bos en Groen", a branch service of the Flemish Community, works to establish an enduring combination of recreation, landscape, ecology and economy. In the military domain, which is partially open to the public during weekends, lies the heath reserve called "Schobbejakshoogte".
Ryckevelde is situated on the territory of Sijsele (Damme), Assebroek (Bruges), Sint-Kruis (Bruges) and Oedelem (Beernem)
The castle domain with botanical garden and educational path is freely accessible.
You can reach it from the Maalse Steenweg, via the Holleweg (Kasteeldreef)
Guided walks are possible for groups.
