“Little green oasis”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

On the sweltering hot day we visited the garden, this little green oasis is a welcome sight. With ample seating (in the shade or sun) and a gentle breeze, this was the perfect spot to take a break.

“Small haven from a busy city”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

I found this little botanic garden by accident when wearily plodding to a nearby tram stop and it looked like just what I needed at the time.

It's round the back of the large city hospital and contains many well labelled plants and trees. In April there's not many flowers to see but I would imagine it's glorious in summer. There are small pools and waterfalls together with some very large (somewhat scary) koi carp. There are also many comfortable seats & benches where you can take a quiet break from the hectic city with a book or just with your own thoughts.

“Wonderful little hideout”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Amidst the hectic shopping district of Antwerp I discovered this wonderful little botanical garden. It's a true haven of peace and quiet, as I sat down on a bench, enjoyed the view of the park and took a deep breath before continuing my quest for a new outfit.
