  • It is a beautiful natural place in the middle of the city. A good place to relax watching the ducks.

  • My first conflict with the police in the city park of Leuven. In fact, 53 years ago you could not walk on the grass!! Since then a lot has changed and is the city park an ideal picnic and diaper place. And a great way to get from one side of town to the other side.

  • A very beautiful small park. It's really nice living near it!
  • It's just a demo of some 3D motorized models. But it was not very pleasant to pack tens of noise-making silicon monsters in such a crowded space. Can be more attractive if there is a live show .
  • I've often wondered why they call this a park. Technically that may be right but it's nothing what you'd expect. Apart from the remnant of the old city wall not much is to be found there. You can take a short walk (you've seen everything after about 5mins) between kitsch fake rocks and waterfall. On sunny days every square meter of grass is occupied by chilling students.
  • A place where you can spend some time and relax on the grass...
  • It is the picnic place for anybody who lives in and around Leuven. Gets really busy in the sunny weather, but for a reason. It provides a lot of shadow under the trees where you can relax and enjoy your day.
