Facing the Egmont Palace, on Rue aux Laines, Egmont Park is home to several sculptures. Of all the statues within, the statues of Peter Pan and that of Price Charles-Joseph de Ligne are much adored. A slice of peace and quiet amid the bustle of the city, the park makes for a nice walk or a short picnic, no matter how old or young you are. Parc d'Egmont also incorporates interesting attractions that seem like they're right out of a fairy tale like an old Gothic well and an Orangerie, to name a few.
In onore del cinquantesimo anniversario dell'Indipendenza del Belgio, Re Leopoldo II commissionò questo parco ed il suo grandioso arco. Oggi si possono visitare alcuni musei come Autoworld e Jubelpark Museo, o sdraiarsi sull'erba ed ammirare le solenni ville. La Grande Moschea ed il Tempio delle Passioni Umane (il primo monumento di Victor Horta) sono situati qui. Ogni anno il 21 di luglio, la data del Festivo Nazionale, vi è uno spettacolo di fuochi d'artificio notturni. Jubelpark è un luogo ideale per tutti.
Considerato uno dei più bei parchi di Bruxelles, il Bois de la Cambre confina con la Foresta di Sonia e la modaiola Avenue Louise. All'interno del parco c'è un piccolo lago con un isoletta nel mezzo, chiamata Robinson's Island. È il luogo perfetto per rilassarsi dopo una faticosa giornata di shopping, e già che ci siete potete anche visitare la Abbaye de la Cambre.
Spanning a sizable area in the valley of Woluwe, the emerald expanses of the Woluwe Park offer a wealth of natural beauty. The velveteen green spaces of the park have stood the test of time since they first arose at the behest of King Leopold II. During the Universal Exposition of 1897, the king wished to build a massive park that would draw the eye of the bourgeois, at the same time linking the Cinquantenaire and the domain of Tervuren with one another. The park evokes instant awe and wonder, with its quiet leafy alcoves, sparkling ponds, and nearly 300 billowing trees that feature across its broad expanse. It is also home to ducks, swans, gulls, and Egyptian geese, who are seen frolicking merrily along the park's tranquil ponds.
The Sonian Forest is a luxuriant expanse of wooded terrain that extends over a sprawling 4,421 hectares (10,920 acres) just beyond the city limits of Brussels. This forest of beech and oak once formed a part of the ancient Charcoal Forest, with roots that can be traced back to the Roman era. Over the centuries, large portions of the forest were cut down to provide lumber for construction. Most notably, Napoleon's impressive Boulogne Flotilla was built using oak harvested from the Sonian Forest at a cost of over 22,000 trees. To avoid any further losses, the forest is now a protected natural area. Beneath a leafy canopy alive with birdsong, the Sonian Forest hosts a number of popular attractions like Joachim Zinner's Beech Cathedral, the Bosmuseum Jan van Ruusbroec and Rouge-Cloître Abbey. Activities like hiking, fishing, horseback riding, wildlife watching and cycling can be enjoyed here.
Domein Drei Fontainen is a lovely natural space just north of downtown Brussels, offering several different areas in which you and your family can connect with nature. An immaculately landscaped Italianate garden features perfectly maintained lawns, stunning topiary and hedgerows of cheery flowers, while more rustic walking paths offer more visual escapes from the urban bustle outside the grounds. If your kids are with you, don't miss the playgrounds that make this park a family favorite.
