The dog park in Square Léopoldville near Avenue de la Couronne in Etterbeek has closed permanently, residents could no longer bear the noise pollution caused by the presence of many dogs.
Faby, Michelle’s little dog will no longer be able to stretch her legs in her favorite park. The padlock on the door and the hanging poster are very clear, it is a permanent closure.
The dog park located within the square quickly became a victim of its own success and was always full. For local residents, on the other hand, the noise generated by dogs, particularly in the evening, quickly became difficult to bear.
After the Brussels-Environment visit, noise-related violations were observed and time limits were imposed. The square is now only accessible to Etterbeek residents, with a limit of five dogs in the enclosure.
