A place of relaxation and culture
The neoclassical style of the The Brussels Park, was designed and laid by Joachim Zinner from 1774 to 1787. It complements the surrounding architecture of the King's Palace, the rue Ducale, the Royal Palace and la rue Royale. The pathways leading up the park are full of statues of mythological characters.
At the entrance to the park there's a jet of water by the octagonal basin.
But the park isn't just a quick shortcut to the metro: there are also regular concerts and children's shows in its music hall.
Shops, boutiques and malls
