Armand Steurs Square
Located to the east of Saint-Josse-Ten-Noode, in the part most recently urbanised, this square illustrates perfectly the style of landscaping and urban development in the interwar period.
It bears the name of the mayor of Saint-Josse-Ten-Noode between 1885 and 1899, who played an essential role in bringing a water supply to the suburbs of Brussels.
The square was designed on the basis of four decorative elements: the Centennial tree and the memorial to Armand Steurs in the upper part, and a fountain and an imposing sculpture by Guillaume Charlier in the broader lower part, made up of a long lawn. As the downgrade is substantial there, a subtle interplay of slopes and stairways was designed. The trees, shrubs, hedges and flowers have been chosen for their hardiness, but also so that they bloom in succession. About ten trees are on the list of remarkable trees in the Brussels-Capital Region.
As the square is listed, management consists of “standard” maintenance of the park: mowing the lawns, planting flowerbeds, etc.
