Green spaces

The Senne
The Senne has its source in the small village of Naast. It then skims the blue stone quarries before leaving for Brussels through the green countryside of Horrues and Steenkerque.

Formerly, the Place Verte was occupied by the Senne and the Place van Zeeland by the fishpond of the Chanoines mill. In this sector, work on the vaulting of the Senne began in 1890. Their objectives were to limit the cholera epidemics which raged throughout the region at the time and to clean up these very humid districts.

The Pater Park
A privileged place reserved for walkers, the Pater Park covers an area of 5 ha and is crossed by the Senne. There is a Vita course, an Agora field, a skate park and a playground for children. In the middle of the magnificent trees of various species, one can also discover a good number of sculptures in Blue Stone.
