|Mariapark Meersel-Dreef is already a known pilgrimage site in Belgium since 1900.
Each year thousands of devotees visit the famous Mariapark "Onze Lieve Vrouw van Meersel-Dreef",
located right opposite the Convent and the Capuchin Church Of Mariapark The Mariapark (also called "Genadedal")
has been founded in the time that it was a monastery park, however, as around 1890 it became a public park for devoties.
At that time, Father John Baptist Rutten departed from the monastery on a mission and promised to found a Mariagrot when he came back unharmed,
this happened and the Mariagrot was founded October 20, 1895 and consecrated by the Bishop of Lahore.
