Terraces for adults and playgrounds for the children 28 juin 2006
But what can one do with the children whilst one unwinds? The most enticing option - and one nobody will disagree with - is to find a playground close to a pub terrace. Here is our selection...
This is a fairlyThis is a fairly arbitrary selection, which should allow you to set your GPS for the next family outing! arbitrary selection, which should allow you to set your GPS for the next family outing!
Bois de la Cambre
For total relaxation, if you like skate parks, the skate park at Bois de la Cambre is a must. There is a terrace right next to the skating rink and a really cute, secure, play area. And if the playground is not enough, why not be bold and take out one of the pedal boats close to the Chalet Robinson!
Chalet de Malou
On the banks of the Woluwe, a huge wooded play ground has the Chalet Malou in its centre. The friendly and welcoming family refreshment stand is not just hype, and you can also get bbq there at the weekends. Not far away, surrounded by greenery, the Brasserie des Étangs Mellaerts serves brasserie style food on its beautiful terrace. The playground is nice and there is a very spacious garden. And for something different, you could try the mini-golf!
Chalet du Laerbeek
On the other side of town, the Chalet du Laerbeek, which is in Baudouin Park, is a truly magnificent setting for family trips.
Porte de Hal
This is a Brussels' play area that is more like an adventure of discovery! The different areas are in a huge castle and some of them are quite medieval. What is the difference between a slingshot and a swing at the Porte de Hal? Several centuries! There are public toilets.

Roodebeek Park was renovated in 2016, and has a giant chess set, looked after by the park keeper. Egg heads will love this place, which is ideal for picnics.
Now that the monks have left the Rouge Cloître priory, their chants have been replaced by children's laughter. Parents can settle down on the pavement opposite the stables and enjoy the cafeteria before taking on the games. At Porte de Hal it's all about knights and maidens, but here it's the turn of the pirates!
And if the weather is not looking good, or your kids just want to explore Brussels' biggest playground, then it's off to Stardust Park to enjoy games and attractions of all kinds: climbing, slides, bumper cars, mazes and other activities will delight children from 2 to 12 years. This magical world will also appeal to parents, since the playground features a restaurant if they have the munchies, and a lounge where they can relax or surf the brusselslife.be site, thanks to the free WiFi ... Both kids and parents will have plenty to talk about!
