In the Lijnbaanstraat in Ostend (BE), 50 parking spaces in the middle of the city have been transformed into a pleasant courtyard garden. The work started in January of this year and the planting has now been completed; trees, perennials, shrubs, flower bulbs and lawn have been planted. The project took place under the banner of Cool Towns with a financial contribution from the European Union. View the photos taken by Charline Helsmoortel of the transformation below this text.
