In Ixelles, Tenbosch Park is a little slice of nature in the heart of a densely built-up area. It was created by dendrologist (tree botanist) Jean-Louis Semet, with the help of gardener Hector Noyer. Together, they transformed this green space into a botanical garden and arboretum of rare plants. Today, the park still has specimens that are unique in Belgium. It's also a refuge for city birds.
Take advantage of your walk through this park to go for a stroll in the nearby green spaces, like the Ixelles ponds, the gardens of La Cambre Abbey and the Bois de la Cambre.
