Beguinage

A key highlight of Minnewaterpark is the Beguinage, a historic enclave dating back to the 13th century. Originally home to the Beguines, a religious community of women, the area features white-painted houses, tranquil gardens, and a central church. Today, it is a Benedictine convent, but visitors can still wander through the serene grounds and gain insight into the lives of the Beguines.

Legend has it that couples who cross the lake together will experience eternal love, making it a popular spot for romantic strolls.

The park’s green spaces are home to various species of birds, making it an inviting spot for bird-watchers. The pathways lined with trees and well-maintained lawns provide a relaxed setting for picnics or leisurely walks.
