In the park, 8 memorial gardens have been laid out in the symbolic shape of a poppy. These gardens are completed at the request of the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 by the different nations that took part in the Battle of Passchendaele, with a design that combines modern art, poetry and symbolic vegetation from that country.

After the First World War, the castle was rebuilt in Norman style. Since 1982 the domain has been opened as a walking area. In 2004 the "Memorial Museum Passchendaele" was opened here. The visitor goes through the 5 strokes at Ypres. One can walk in a German trench or descend into a 6m deep British dugout with communication and first aid station, headquarters and sleeping quarters.

The starting point of the walk has a spacious parking lot. There is also a very nice park to visit at this departure point with the Passendaele Memorial museum. For the kids there is a very nice adventure tour, with some climbing and wooden play equipment.
There are also very clean public toilets and a restaurant in the domain.
