The royal domain of Laeken has a surface area of 186 hectares (larger than Koekelberg and Sint-Joost-Ten-Noode). Unfortunately, the park is not open to the public. However, our city needs more places to relax, do sports or have fun. The densely populated areas along the canal continue to grow every year and it is important that there are more green spaces. Additional green space is not a luxury, but an absolute necessity for the liveability of Brussels.
The ‘Park National’ initiative wants at least part of the royal estate to be open to residents and visitors of Brussels. Participate, sign our letter to the king, come jogging with us on the 8th of October 2022!
