“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Worth the not-very-long walk away from the Grand Place. Nice photo opportunities and a quiet spot. On a nice day it's perfect to walk throughout stop for a bit.

“Beautiful flowers but really a show garden”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

This really is more of a show garden than a place for the public to sit and relax. It's very small, OK for a quick sit down and sandwich but it really is rather dull.

“Jardin du Petit Sablon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

A picturesque and peaceful garden that offers some lovely photo opportunities. It is also a great place to relax or have something to eat if you have snacks or a packed lunch with you. Worth taking a look if you are nearby.

“An oasis of calm and beauty in the central city.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Just down the hill from the Musée des Beaux-Arts is the Petit Sablon square. The Petit Sablon is the extension, across the Rue Royale, of the Grand Sablon, where you will find, among other things, fine shops, chocolate purveyors Marcolini and Wittamer, a large Pain Quotidien, and, on Sundays, a famous antiques market. The Petit Sablon, by contrast, is an oasis of calm. It is impeccably well kept, with the cool sounds of water masking the trams passing just outside. Two statues, of the Counts Egmont and Horn, dominate the space and remind passers-by of Belgium's 16th-Century struggle against Spanish tyranny . Around the fence are 48 small statues representing the various traditional trades practiced in Brussels. The park dates from the late 19th Century.
