This was a simple haven of loveliness. It was very small, no Kew Gardens or RHS Wisley, but to those there this was obviously an oasis of charm & beauty.

Ideal place when trying to relax in nature. During the summer it’s just absolutely magnificent when all the flowers are blooming. You’ll find students studying here or people relaxing or having a picnic. It’s also close to the center of Leuven, so it’s worth a...More

I happily spent two hours visiting this big garden and I could enjoy the calmness and the silence of the environment around. A special mention is deserved by some type of flowers and plants which were very characteristic and colourful. Definitely good!

Free park with most buildings open year-around. There are plants from all over the world, including tropicals, citrus, and cactus. Great place for a date!
