“Urban park”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

While it's of course good to have parks in the city, this one is just that, not much more. Added value comes from the various museums the park has, but other than that... it's very urban, very kept, grass always cut, etc. It's of course always full of people. Good for a lunch sneak-out or a run if you're so inclined, but all in all, just a park in the middle of the town.

I like the Woluwe Park much more: https://plus.google.com/app/basic/local/102302365159540900489/about?gl=BE&hl=en-BE

“A lovely park!”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

The outstanding statues all over the park and the location of a couple of museums such as Car Museum makes it an intersting place for all tastes!

“My preferred park in Brussels”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

I liked very much this park, more than Le park de Bruxelles. Ideal for a relaxing stroll or sitting down and read a book.

“A beautiful and big park”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

The only problem concerning this park is that is a little far from downtown, in the other hand is big and you can relax and see the beautiful Arch. Is close to the buildings of the EU.

“An oasis in an otherwise dull city”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Brussels is not the most enchanting European capital.But this Park is a must for a stroll after work or lots of food (the two things one does best in Brussels).A real oasis for meditation or romance.
