For a so called "green city", Ghent really has no clue on how to treat its parks. And the Citadel is one of them. It could be so beautiful and a great place to walk around as it has so much potential but unfortunately it...More

Nice park, some pieces are a bit old and need some ltc, but in every season the park is changing and worth a visit. See the beatiful flowers, the geese, the various plants and trees and the pont with stunning shadows. SMAK, the museum of...More

Was nice to feel like we stepped out of the city for a bit. However the park is clearly man made and has specific structure and pathways. Great to just relax and sit on a nice day.

Park with a great history but a tricky place during nighttime. Misses that extra mustard to become a liked place. Very frequented place by students during the exam period in june.

Quite large and diverse. There are a couple of art galleries here as well. Peaceful, and some wonderful sculptures here as well.

Citadel Park is just down the street from our hotel, and we went there on a hot afternoon to take a leisurely stroll and then sit under the trees. Another day we picked up sandwiches and had our lunch in the park. It's very lush,...More

It's a very pretty little park, but not as nice as others. It's also a half hour walk outside of the city center, so not really worth it unless you're going to save time using the tram. The walk isn't that long really, but I...More

We came here on our way from the city centre to the train station. We didn't intend to see the park but did anyway. There are some pretty statues here and benches one can sit on and relax. We were here during the spring and...More
