There are so many green oases in and around the city.

You can choose from small, cosy parks, like the Appelbrugparkje and the Baudelopark, or large landscaped parks like the Citadelpark (which is home to the two main visual arts museums), the Koning Albertpark (behind the central Library and the Administrative Centre) and the Groene Vallei. 

All Ghent's parks are maintained without the use of pesticides.

From April until October, several parks feature (pink) picnic tables.
