17/50.- Brussels, The Brussels Park


The Brussels Park, with intricate Masonic symbolism hidden in its layout, stands between the Royal Palace and the Government Building (Senate and Parliament). Some of the battles for the liberation of Belgium in 1830 were fought here. More recently, thousands of Belgians gathered here to celebrate the beginning of the new century. The park contains a playground for children, a theatre, a clubhouse, two fountains, refreshment and ice cream stalls, and a number of rectangular lawns, which are popular with civil servants and employees from the surrounding banks and ministries during their lunchtime break.
