Photographer's Note

Minnewaterpark is full of small canals (it is actually an artificial lake that helped flood control during medieval era), birds (including some beautiful swans, by the way its interesting to know the first swans came here in 1448 by Maximilian of Austria) etc Minnewater park means lake of love in dutch (though more accurately it ought to be rendered the lake upon which all love as Georges Rodenback writes) and definitely you will have many nice photo shots in romantic corners here before you start exploring the medieval old part of the town. Once a busy harbour now just a peaceful park for joggers.

Lovely park for sure, you can also check the Powder Tower that dates from 14th century and the lock gate from 15th century.

Notwithstanding the multitude of reflections which were mirrored in the waters-corners of blue skies, red tiles of roofs, snow of swans, green of poplar trees-all were unified into tracks leaving the effect of an uncoloured silence.
