Just a short walk from the Domaine Royal de Laeken (Royal Estate of Laeken), these gardens are the result of Leopold II's wishes. This majestic leafy-green area extended the Stuyvenberg Estate. In 1999, a public park was created there. The different gardens which now make up the park reinterpret the historic nature of the site and give it a refined modernity, whilst meeting the strictest environmental standards. As the highpoint of the visit, the balconies emphasise the sweeping view that stretches from Notre-Dame de Laeken to the Palais de Justice (law courts).
