This massive 70 hectare park has a lot to offer. At the very centre of the park is the flamboyant Gothic statue monument to King Leopold I. To the east are the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken, and to the south-east, the Castle of Laeken. Natural beauty abounds: winding trails, groves of trees, undulating lawns, sparkling streams and ponds. The Park is inundated with splendid flowers like magnolias, daisies, rhododendrons and jasmine and become a sight to behold when they bloom. And the trees! Chestnuts, conifers, ash, yews, hawthorn, beeches and maples! It is said this is the most English of Brussels’ parks. The best panoramic view of the park can be enjoyed from near the monument.
Surrounding the park are other places of interest, for example, the Chinese Lodge and the Japanese Tower gardens.
