PARK CHENEAU - ALLARD

The park Cheneau is located in Braine l'Alleud, near Waterloo in Belgium.
The Cheneau park was once a private estate with meadows, small woods and the large castle garden.

Today, this area of 5 hectares has four tennis courts and a playground. The walk through the beautiful  ash and chestnut trees lead your steps to the castle of Cheneau. It is also called Chateau Allard and was built in 1906-1907



Mother Nature is late this year, so all the trees were still naked !



Still some a very courageous couple was laying on the grass



There were only few children playing in the playground





The old farm was closed



The castle looks more as a manor seen from the front





and from the back.

I didn't stay long, it really was cold, I decided to go back in summer !

It's more like a villa indeed. Is it open for visit?

That's a beautiful chateau. I'm sure it won't be long before those trees are covered in green.

Beautiful elegant 'fine home. I like when they turn these places into areas open for the public -- it makes a beautiful park.
