The Parc de Bruxelles, also known as the Brussels Park is a public park in the heart of Brussels. The park is spread over an area of 32 acres and is flanked by the Royal Palace of Brussels, the Belgian Parliament and the Embassy of the United States of America.

The Brussels Park was constructed between 1776 and 1783 by Gilles-Barnabe Guimard and Joachim Zinner. Constructed in a neoclassicist, geometric architectural style, the main entrance of the park faces the Belgian House of Parliament. A boulevard leads to the main pond in the centre of the park, which offers views of three other popular places in Brussels; the Royal Palace, the Place du Trone and the Palaceof Justice.

During the summer months the park comes to life and also becomes a hub of free parties. There are also many concerts and events which take place in the park throughout the year and attract many locals and tourists.
