As a kind of NY Central Park, La Cambre is nestled in town (east, Elsene/Ixelles/Ukkel) and it is a part of the vast forest. Ideal for a stroll or a picknick. A skate rink, some restaurants and a real Island.. with a posh restaurant/snack (Chalet Robinson) - that you can reach by a small boat service (navette).

Once you have crossed the streets around the park, it is a beautiful place to jog, walk or yoga! The park has a lake and you can enter the forêt de Soignes from there. On sundays they even close the roads in the park so no cars are allowed ! :)

If you are in the Ixelles area and would like to go for a walk/run, Bois de La Cambre is unique. Situated in the middle of a big city, this park offers a genuine getaway from the urban environment.

The Bois de la Cambre is not far away by tramway from Louise and Stephanie square. You can walk around the lake or rent a small boat. If you walk in the forest of Soignes, make sure you don't get lost and return before sunset...

This is one of the biggest park in Brussels, not too far from the center and perfect to spend a sunny afternoon. You can also eat your lunch in the restaurant "Chalet Robinson"

A beautiful park with an enormaous amount space to walk especially around the lake and to enjoy the surroundings. Once away from the roads going through the park, a very peaceful experience

This is for sure the best park in Brussels. Is really big but my favorite spot is close to the restaurant in front of the small lake. You can also rent a boat, really romantic! To go on the small island you have to pay 1€ to use the barge, is free for who had a reservation at the restaurant.

This is amazing place to escape your daily routine and reconnect with nature since the forest is big enough so there are places that are really wild and intimate.
