Faider Park: spin us a yarn!

Faider Park: spin us a yarn!

Hidden behind a doorway, in a rear courtyard, Faider park was abandoned and forgotten for many years until local residents, along with the municipality of Ixelles/Elsene, decided to inject it with new life and colour.
Today, it is an example of local resilience and the focus of initiatives to improve the quality of life of the neighbourhood community and users of the park.
Over the course of these two days, you will relive the history, legends and myths of Faider Park and learn about some interesting initiatives launched by local inhabitants!

A partnership between the Embellissons le Parc Faider Collective, the Faider d’Amour et d’Eau Fraîche allotment and the Municipality of Ixelles/Elsene.
