This part of town, like all other parts of Bruges, is like a fairy tale. I happened across the lake while taking a walk and it was delightful. The canal with the swans creates such a magical atmosphere. I brought my husband back later that day and we visited again before we left. It is just a nice little break from everything. Had it been warmer, we would have come back for a picnic!

The park is really beautiful, I recommend to visit it. You will find there peace and calm. It is near the railway station, so when you arrive, it is the first place you're passing by to get e.g, to the Beguinage.

This small lake in the centre (or more correctly, just off centre), of the town is both calming and picturesque. A great place to just sit and wait for the world to go by, or watch the local water fowl. There were even Swans there. Recommended for an evening stroll or a small picnic.

Located south of the tourist centre of Bruges this tranquil park is well worth a visit. There is an attractive lake and lots of secludes glades in the park. Ideal for a picnic.

Perfect place to take a memory picture :) Old bridge works well with the lake and the view is stunning!
