The ships navigating on the Bossuit-Kortrijk Canal originally had to pass through a 611-metre tunnel near Moen. This tunnel was replaced with an open channel during works on the canal in the 1970s. This resulted in 225,000 lorries of clay being dumped on an agricultural area next to the canal.
The 26-hectare area was transferred to the Agency for Nature and Forests in 1988, and it was opened to the public in 2001. You can now go there for a walk in a beautiful and diverse green area including woods, meadowland, pools and brushwood. Shetland ponies are in charge of keeping the grass at the desired length. Orveyt Wood also offers several walking and cycling routes.
