The park was begun in 1894, with encouragement from Leopold II, on the Champeau headland, on the site of the glacis of the Citadel fortifications which had been handed over to the City of Namur in 1892. With fine views over the town and the Meuse, the 100 hectare park conceals an arboretum with over 125 varied species, such as the austria carpinifolia, pinus ponderosa, styrax japonica, betula maximowiziana... There are also a number of recreational facilities such as the sports stadium, amusement park, and an open air theatre, the place for various cultural events. Nearby, you can also discover a garden full of perfumes and a medieval garden.
