This is one of Brussels ‘green lungs’; an area to escape the noise of the city. Bordered by trees – many imported from around the world for their interesting leaves, bark and shape – the park has many statues and sculptures of local worthies who have no doubt contributed to the park and Belgian society. As usual in Brussels you... More

Beautiful park, lots of thing to do, ideally for jogging and doing some workout here; quiet, nice and green. It has more entrances so you can pretty much reach it from every corner

We often go here on a sunny evening/afternoon, to catch some rays when they are around which isn't v often. It's not the most relaxed discreet park in Brussels but usually see lots of different groups of people enjoyibg their own company. There's a little animal farm with donkeys and always ducks in the pond. The park café is undergoing... More

A parc that has many facets. It's around 20 hectares. It's ideal for a morning or evening run, a fitness run or a nice walk. The parc holds many statues and has been beautifully restored many years ago. It is well maintained and has amenities for children. Enjoy on a sunny afternoon .

Park is very nice and enjoyable by all aged group. Very close to Main road and easily accessible by Tram 7 Bus 64,65,66 which passes adjacent to park. Inside the park only a restaurant is present so one can enjoy drinks and food.

This park is a hive of activity during the summer months. The local council organises free events, such as "les Apéros du Parc Josaphat" . You can find the event calendar via the town hall website, sorry not possible to post the url here. The park is split into several parts and there is something for everyone, joggers, footballers, archers... More

I consider Park Josaphat one of the nicest parks in Brussels. It is not that big like the other but you feel in the woods. All the park was completely build but they have tried to do it the best and real way possible. The kids can enjoy it a lot because there are animals to see and touch. In... More

This park is beautiful and could be a small Central Park of Brussels. But to get there, the town should care more and control all the people that soil the park or bother the other visitors, by making loud music or playing heavy ball games.
