About us

The Meuse Valley River Park is a cross-border landscape park with the Meuse and its winter bed at its core. Along both banks of the Meuse, a number of picturesque Meuse villages developed, strung together like a string. This ensemble of nature and culture is what makes the Meuse Valley River Park so unique. What this unique river landscape stands for, and what the ambitions and challenges for the future are, you can read in our masterplan 2024-2048 (Dutch).


The RivierPark Maasvallei is the result of extensive cross-border collaboration between two countries, two provinces, 11 municipalities, two water managers, four nature managers, three tourist organisations and many others. The Belgian-Limburg deputy for tourism and heritage, Igor Philtjens, puts his shoulders under this partnership as chairman.
