Stadspark – Antwerp’s central parc

“Triangles are my favourite shape, three points where two lines meet.” Alt-J was on to something. They almost describe this popular park, which provides the necessary oxygen to keep the heart of my sumptuous concubine Antwerp beating, in one sentence.

Those who are willing can come here and enjoy a stroll or a jog. Like many parks across the globe, it comes alive during spring and summertime. Kids are going buck wild on a playground. Daredevils are performing gutsy shows in the skate park, and geeks like me are lying in the grass with a good book; just like a good little anarchist should. Naturally, there is a lot of grass, trees, dirt and sand. But, there are a few eye catchers as well. Such as a World War I memorial and a nineteenth-century bridge designed by the architect Keylig.

This location brings Antwerp together. As soon as some lost rays of sun hit this side of the earth, you will see numerous cultures with various backgrounds soaking up the sun serenely. You can enjoy a falafel underneath a lovely tree after wandering through the diamond quarter. Park your frustrated ass on a bench when your train is running late, or commence your walk towards the beautiful district Zurenborg after strolling through the park. The architectural ornaments at the Cogels Osylei or the graffiti at Nieuw Zurenborg are worth the jaunt.

In a nutshell, you’re bound to cross this park while visiting Antwerp since it is near numerous hot spots.
