Sauvagère Park


Few people are aware that Sauvagère Park was once laid out around a château, demolished in 1957, and consisted of just a few copses and an entrance road leading to the building. Enlarged in 1910 and again in 1925, resulting in its current 4.5 hectares, it now consists of a mixed beech wood that covers the hilly terrain of the site, which is still traversed by sunken lanes and raised pathways. A huge artificial embankment, formed from faux rocks with a series of waterfalls, serves as a foundation for a Greek-style temple. The perimeter of the pond itself, which is made from cement, has a wild, rocky appearance and is a good example of this type of ornamental feature in the Brussels region. Here and there around the park can be seen some giant sequoias, an Atlas cedar and a tulip tree, all listed as remarkable trees. (Listed 26/06/1997)
