Located in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert, Malou Park is the oldest public park in the commune. It’s one of the sequence of green spaces that line the Woluwe stream, which cuts beautifully across the park.
You may see a rare insect: the brightly coloured calopteryx damselfly, which lives near bodies of water. You’ll recognise it by the metallic blue-green or green-brown colour of its abdomen. Its presence is a sign of good water quality.
You can also discover Château Malou, built in 1776 in the style of the aristocracy’s country houses at the time. It’s used for cultural events, seminars and receptions. A little further along, you’ll pass by the Lindekemale mill, one of the oldest in the Brussels-Capital Region. It used to be a water and paper mill, before becoming a snuff and chicory factory. Today it’s a restaurant and a café-dairy, but it was already providing refreshment to walkers back in the beginning of the 20th century.
