Tenbosch

Belgium

Tenbosch Park, Tenbosch or Tenbos (French: Parc Tenbosch, Dutch: Tenbosch Park, meaning in the bush), is a public park in the municipality of Ixelles in BrusselsBelgium. Although relatively small with an area of 2 hectares (4.9 acres), it is an exquisitely landscaped park popular among local residents. It is surrounded by a wall and offers an unexpected oasis of calm in a busy district.  Because of its little alleys and hidden places that make it quite cozy, some use it as an urban beach and feel comfortable enough to bring their swimming suits and towels. There are also small extensions of grass protected by bushes and fruit trees, that can provide a sense of privacy and coziness. 

Tenbosch is within a short walking distance of Avenue Louise/Louizalaan, the Ixelles PondsLa Cambre Abbey, and the Bois de la Cambre/Ter Kamerenbos.

The area was formerly a privately owned dendrological garden called Semet after its owner. In 1982, the estate became the property of the Brussels-Capital Region, which entrusted the company R.Pechère + Partners with the task of transforming it into a public park. They were tasked with preserving the spirit of the Semet-Solvay garden while transforming the existing paths into urban walks. The park has been open to the public since 1986.
