its a quick walk in the park, no need for expert walking shoes. Nice views, best time to visit is when 'cherry trees' are in bloom. Good place to visit after or before going in to the city.

Visited what we were told the largest Japanese gardens in Europe. Excellent value and close to the city. Well wirth the visit and I expect in the spring the cherry trees would be fantastic. Only criticsm, is that it should say in the brochures that there are no tea/coffee facilities.

Beautiful place to walk, ideal for summer. A lot of trees, flowers and a small clean lake. Located in the city.

The Japanese garden is a gift of the Japanese town of Itami to Hasselt. This is the place where you can find stillness and that even so close to town. The maintenance is extraordinary. And when you are lucky you can participate at a tea ceremony or an other festivity related to the Japanese culture.

I have visited this place at the beginning of July. The garden is really beautiful, nature is amazing, and you can really enjoy it. The thing I liked is that there wasn't too many people so I could actually relax, but the thing I liked less is that you can actually hear every single car passing by and there is... More

Went there with my girlfriend the other day, It was kinda hard to find the entrance (you have to either go via the bikers track or the big red shape in front), once inside it's crazy to believe this place is right here in hasselt. So beautifull and great for making cute pictures! Awsome place!

Small and cozy Japanese garden in a city. I was in mid June when not so much trees and flowers were blossoming. When enjoying the garden you still hear the traffic around it. So, not so much possibilities to enjoy the silence. Price 5 euros, parking for free close by.
