Park life in Brussels – Parc du Cinquantenaire

Park life in Brussels – Parc du Cinquantenaire

Yesterday we decided to pack a picnic and head to the beautiful Parc du Cinquantenaire which is in the European Quarter of Brussels. This parc is home to the Cinquantenaire Musuem, Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and AutoWorld as well as some beautiful parkland!

The sun didn’t exactly have his (or her) hat on but we headed out with coats on, picnic packed and a spring in our step. It’s a leisurely 15 minute walk to the park from our apartment.

Now one thing you’ll need to remember (which we didn’t) when your having a picnic is a picnic blanket. The ground was quite damp so we found a lovely bench overlooking the stunning triumphal arches of the Cinquantenaire and tucked into our sandwiches.

Parc du Cinquantenaire is full of hidden treasures from amazing Horta sculptures to a fantastic children’s play ground. After our picnic we of course headed straight for the playground which is tucked in next to the Army Forces Museum where we spent around an hour playing!

The park is alive with flowers, definitely heralding the start of spring. L enjoyed running up and down the pathways exploring the gardens and in true boy style jumping off benches!

After a good three hours exploring the park we headed on home. What a great way to start the beginning of spring!

Thanks for reading
