Jean-Felix Hap Park – Childhood memories…

Years ago as a kid, I had to accompany my parents to their notary. I remember how impressed I was by the house where he had his offices: old, big, many, many books, and the feeling that in this kind of venue, time doesn’t run as quick as outside.

From the window, I could see a wonderful garden. Being a kid my dream was to have the chance to run out there… but for some reason, I couldn’t. All seem so serious, that I didn’t dare to ask.

I was imagining the notary and his wife and kids living in this beautiful house, with such a nice garden…

Very few years later (in 1988), the garden became a public park…. I felt happy as I could access it easily… and, in my secret dreams, I like to think that the decision of the owner was taken after seeing me desperate in the corridors of his study…

This Park is just so romantic… quiet, beautiful, and I can just advice you to visit it. If you’re a couple it would be even better…
