The Park du Viaduc is one of the lesser known green areas of Brussels. Hidden behind a street of the same name, it is very unlikely that you’ll meet here anyone else than residents of this Ixelles neighborhood. I am a big fan of these small lesser known parks where you can come and spend some quiet time reading a book or just relax under a peaceful apple tree. The place is always uncrowded, a little less on Wednesday afternoons when school is off or on holidays where you might encounter a few families with children investing the playground but even then there’s still plenty of room for everyone to coexist peacefully. Also a great place to enjoy a peaceful picnic with friends, just the right mix of shade, sun for everyone to enjoy on the well kept lawns . Park personnel are always present and do their little round and make sure that everyone respects the rules in a friendly and pleasant manner.
Parc du Viaduc is best for those who:
- Are already in the neighborhood and are looking for a quiet and lesser known alternative
- Those who love small parks
- Those who don’t want to see too many people
- Those who like to discover new places
