At any time of day or evening, this park close to the old town is a lovely area for a stroll alongside canals and trees. It’s quiet and peaceful, but located so close to the station that if you’re walking into town from your train,...More

A great place to go have a walk by the lake. A bit away from the center but you can be there in about 15min walking from the center.

We ran by it but had to stop for a minute to enjoy the beautiful lake. If you go early you Will be alone, enjoy the peace & quite moments without tourists.

Loved the spot, very romantic with lush green lawns, pathways with great fall Colors, complementary brick buildings and lots of birds (swans, ducks). The place was full of life. It was 5-7 mins walk from the Brugge markt area.

Calm area for a walk around the lake, and around some of the paths. Tea rooms are pretty close, and this just sits on the outside of the buildings, and away from the noise of the city and traffic..
