The Molenvijver & sundial park

The Molenvijver Park in the centre of Genk was originally a swampland that was fed by the Dorpsbeek. In 1967, the Molenvijvers were converted into a city park. The authentic watermill is now a restaurant.

You have a view from the Molenvijvers Park onto the most beautiful villas in Molenstraat. Number 80 is La Maison Blanche, the artist Armand Maclot’s villa.

You’ll also find a sundial park here, with no fewer than 12 ways to tell the time.
In this park in Genk you’ll find 12 contemporary sundials. They were designed byJan De Graeve with the help of gnomonists and artists from various European countries. The project brings together scientific ingenuity, modern technology and artistic design. Discover the creativity of scientists and the reasoning of artists or ... how art and science can complement each other. Even when the sun isn’t shining, it’s certainly worth visiting the park.
