Sluispark is a brand-new park in the trendy Vaartkom neighbourhood. Water plays a central role here, thanks to the opening up of the Dyle river, the large steps which double as seating all the way to the water, and a unique water play area.
You will also find the Green Leaf artwork here. Leuven won this prestigious European award because the city serves as a role model in terms of sustainable development.
As the 2018 European Green Leaf, Leuven wants to inspire other cities with its strategy, in which the entire community is involved in combatting climate change. Even the artwork asks you to interact with it: let your kids climb, hang, and play on the letters and meet new people on the Green Leaf bench.
