This one of many beautiful connecting trails in the area. This trail extends along a portion of the Deûle Canal beginning at Cottage Wood Park (La Bois de la Gîtes). Running along the canal is the Park of the Deûle, also called the Green Axis of Lille. It is not a park in the traditional sense of the word, nor a nature reserve, but rather a kind of "regional landscape" that extends over more than 25 km along the canal of the Deûle and includes ten municipalities. It includes a number of beautifully landscaped nature strips where it is wonderful to walk and cycle.
