If you look from a plane over Brussels, you will notice that it is a very "green" city, with lots of parks of all sizes. Brussels belongs to the top 10 of Europe's greenest capitals.
The Bois de la Cambre is an urban public park in Brussels. It has an area of 1.23 square kilometres (0.765 square miles) and in summer the ideal place for a family picnic.
But there are also lots of little green squares amongst the buildings
All these parks are open to the public, for walks or picnics
The extensive Woluwe Park includes giant sequoias, cypresses, and a variety of birds such as swans, gulls, and herons.
