Party know-how in Hap Park

Come and experience the everyday existence, the artistic life and the local crafts and trades connected with this heritage site, through living workshops, concerts and guided tours, all carried out in a festive 1900s atmosphere. You will also learn about the plans to revitalise the site made by the municipality of Etterbeek as part of its Sustainable Neighbourhood Contract. These involve the creation of a multicultural meeting space where cuisine, culture and nature will go hand-in-hand, for the benefit of residents living locally and further afield.

A partnership between art historians specialising in the heritage of monuments and sites, Jean-Marie Bailly (the garden) and Marie-Pierre Dusausoy (the house), Etterbeek municipal council (the owner and manager), En Stoemelings brewery, the La Route du Papier studio (specialists in old paper), the Bougard-Félis musical ensemble (for an exploration and discussion focusing on Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel and Offenbach), the stained glass studio Rénovitro, the non-profit association Histoires de Plantes, the non-profit association La Fonderie(with a model of the Maelbeek valley), the non-profit association Entre Voisins (old toys), and the architectural and landscaping firm SKOPE (the designer of the project to restore the site).
