I always miss going for a walk in the green countryside of a place like the Parc des Etangs Mellaerts.

A rich history


The Mellaerts lakes are named after François Mellaerts, who bought various areas of pasture and farm land in 1883. In 1898, when Avenue de Tervueren was built, he was bestowed another area with two lakes in exchange for his property. This was the start of a long love affair between the people of Brussels and the Parc des Etangs Mellaerts.

Fishing and boating


Now over a hundred years old, the park has managed to retain its attraction for the public and is now divided into two parts: one has a fishing lake and one has a lake for other leisure activities, which is the perfect solution. What I like doing as a way of relaxing is walking around the park and watching people enjoying the boating and the pedalos. The simple pleasures of life.
