“Small and mediocre”
Review of Sint-Donatuspark

Sint-Donatuspark
Ranked #18 of 55 things to do in Leuven
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 August 2012

It is very apparent that this little park in Leuven, as so many other parks, is a bit of left-over land, where building was difficult, so they turned it into a park. It consist of a lane with trees, backing on to the backs of two streets and then widens up into a small green patch. It has some features, like a pond, an auditorium and the ruins of part of the city wall. Main feature however, is grass.
I suppose that on a sunny day it offers a welcome and tranquil refuge from the ugly streets around it. When we visited, it wasn't sunny, so the park was plain boring.
Far more interesting is the Chinese planetarium that can be found just behind the auditorium, in the garden of the university building that is used as an exit to the park.

This really is the ideal place to go after picking up a sandwich or any other food to go. When the weather is nice and warm, the park is full of students soaking up the rays and usually some entertainment in the form of jugglers or dogs running for fetch. It's just so relaxing and I can't recommend it enough. Even in the winter, the well-planned park has a unique beauty to it and the silence and serenity at that time of year is priceless.

This park is ideal for a few moments of quiet during a trip to Leuven. I spent several hours here on a few days, reading a book whilst my baby was sleeping. You can watch the students come and go and see the world go by in peace and quiet. Also a nice place for a picnic.

The park is not huge, but is pleasant to walk around, with nice flower beds and small ponds with ducks. There are also some ruins of the old city walls to look at. Tucked away in the corner is a children's play park which is fund for the little ones to stretch their legs and tire them out a bit.
