One of many beautiful Brussels parks. Walked passed this park many times and it's always in pristine condition. Great place for a walk.

Easy to miss as it's right at the top of Place du Grand Sablon, which is a good place to sit outside one of the many cafes and watch the world go by. If you're a smoker, the tobacconist Davidoff has excellent choice, with many...More
