Avenue de Stassart
- MAPS: Google Maps
The unusual form and the artificial rocks mark this 3 ha park that was named after Belgium's first queen. It came to being after a competition that was won by Constatin Schmits and was opened for the public in 1880. The two-levelled city park has an artificial grotto and a pond on the lower level and a kiosk on the upper level. It is also home to several unusual species. Renovation began in 1988 when the old Pont Hollandaise, a remnant of the last gate of Brussels, was cleared. There are recreational facilities, with a children's playground.
Open all year round, sunrise to sunset.
