Keent is located in an old meander of the river Maas (Meuse). The old river arm that was cut and slammed in 1938, has been excavated over a length of 4 km and branched back to the river on one side. In the adjacent flood plain, new nature has been created over an area of more than 300 hectare and secondary channels and wet areas have been created. It is now a flat area with low shrubs and bushes, grasslands, dikes and secondary channels and wet areas. There are good hiking opportunities and you can watch the birds from the dikes. You will find meadow birds, songbirds and waterfowl.
You can park on the designated parking spot (See the P on the map). From there you can explore the area on foot. By bike you can cross the area and see most of the interesting spots, but not all the areas are accessible by bike.
