Celebrate a birthday or just get away from the concrete. It is a nice place to spend it outdoor. Nice touch with the fountains. We have many times had picnics with friends in this park and would suggest it.

I am Australian and now live around the corner from this Parc. I love to go for walks and its very safe. The arch is one of the most beautiful I have seen. There are a couple of museums are inside the park, an art museum, autoworld and the military museum. The military museum has a big collection of warplanes,... More

Just look at the picture... yes, this is Brussels (comes from the old Flemish word of Broekzele, the marshes). It is worth while escaping from the crowded Brussels centre to see another aspect of the capital. Grandioze complex full of interesting musea (Autoworld and the like) and expo's, surrounded by lively Streets with nice restaurants.n And some adjoining green spaces... More

We visited this on a Sunday, with friends who live in Brussels. Firstly, I couldn't believe how busy it was. I don't mean like Tesco on Xmas eve busy, but just full of families playing. We don't get this in the UK. Was so nice to see. Shops aren't open, and people can have quality time instead of sitting in... More

I can see how it would be very idyllic in the spring and the summer to wonder round but it's very open and with the wind it's pretty chilly at this time of year! Stunning architecture however apart from the building itself there isn't really anything else unless your interested in autoworld or the other museum there. It took a... More

This is a large park associated with several museums. In itself, it is not particularly worth a visit. But it nicely adorns this important monument, Cinquantenaire, and the worthy museums on the grounds.
