Tunnel, trees, trunk

A true jewel and somewhat of a hidden treasure, not very far from downtown Brussels.
The pedestrian tunnel connects the Solvay Park (named after Ernest Solvay   en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Er#3CD9C3) to the magnificent ForĂȘt de Soignies with its century old trees.
The castle is hidden behind huge beech trees.
A sign near the cut trees reads “zone de protection”, “beschermde zone”, a reference to careful nature preservation policy.
