There is a lot to see in this urban park located next to the European Parliament. You should know that it is the remnant of an ancient valley, Maelbeek. It used to be more developed in medieval times as evidenced by the remnants of the Eggevoort Tower in park. The park itself was opened in 1880 and it has been said it has very British landscaping elements. Standard park amenities such as running paths benches are there. The pond usually has ducks and geese and swans; the trees are home to mallards, moorhens, and coots; the trees themselves are quite rare breeds. Located on the park grounds are the buildings of the Solvay Conference, the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, the Library of Solvay and a museum.
