I'm not sure why, but for some reason the Sint Donatus Park felt quite artificial to me, as if it were a bigger version of a very tacky miniature golf course. Like many things in Leuven, the park isn't huge, which means that it gets...More

How many days I've layed myself on the grass to blow off steam. This park is located in the center of Leuven and though it might not be big, it has a certain charm that keeps pulling me back in! Also it's amazing to see...More

Elegant, classic park that because of its' surrounding buildings might feel a bit like Central Park. The lane from the Hooverplein to the open area is an invitation for portrait photography; the open field at the end has a enchanting arena-like feel to it. It...More

It is a park I love and maybe one of my favorite places in Leuven. Nice to relax, have a picnic, sit with the coffee or just lie down and do nothing else.

What can you say about the Sint-Donatuspark. It's the "central park" of Leuven. You walk through it in less then 5 minutes. There is not much to see there: a grotto with a small waterfall and they did renovate the medieval city wall tower which...More

A lovely place in the city to walk, run, or just sit and think - especially when the weather is good.

Leuven’s city park Saint-Donatus is not an impressive green area, it’s a small park of less than 6 acres, conceived in the 19th century as a romantic landscape park with ponds. It will take you less than half an hour to walk through to have...More

Ideal for a walk, to relax and to enjoy nature in the city centre. Go and visit also the city wall remainings in the parc, they have been restorated recently.
