The bridge is the passage to the nature reserve behind the farm.
Damme has very beautiful nature reserves.

This part delimits the southern part of the nature reserve "De Oude Stadswallen", between Polderstraat and Zuidervaartje (see also Dammesteenweg, Damse Vaart-West and Polderstraat). A first plot of this is purchased in 1982; gradually more plots are acquired or taken over. It concerns shallow water features, reed fields and swamp forest in the original canals and hay and meadows on the ramparts. The presence of, among others, "marsh fern" and the carnivorous aquatic plant "common bladderwort" prove the botanical value of the area. The area is managed by vzw Natuurpunt, which purchases a number of adjacent fields and meadows in order to close the old defense belt around Damme again. This nature reserve is accessed via a pedestrian bridge over the Zuidervaartje that connects to a municipal walking path that connects Damse Vaart-Zuid with Kerkstraat and the city center.

I hope you like it
