This is rather a means of transportation in WSP. I just appreciate seeing landscapes while having a ride on those trams.
I sometimes take Tram39 till end station... just for fun, to see nice houses! Tram 44 till end station is even nicer. It carries you to Tervueren area, where lies the African Museum of Tervueren, one of great works comissioned by King Leopold II & whose architecture reminds of Versailles castle. Funny enough, it is called the "Brussels' Versailles". You will have to go through green areas as well as see great villas.
Take 39-44 at Montgomery station for instance and have a ride to discover WSP.
Both line are part of STIB net.

A nice place to shop in. Most of times, not that cheap.
Head to Place Dumon and wander in those streets to buy women's clothes, men's clothes, Italian shoes, Burberry items, underwear, perfume and cosmetics...
Food and drinks as well since supermarkets are around, including this one in Galerie de Stockel. Galerie de Stockel has some trendy and chic boutiques for women, men, shoes and accessories. There cafés as well as hair salon...
I like shopping there since the area is not crowded at all. Shopping becomes a nice ride then... even for those who don't enjoy crowded streets and places like me.
What to buy: Women's clothes, shoes, Burberry items, underwear, accessories...
As usual in any marketplace in Belgium, the French fries at the frit kot in the center of the square that houses the WSP market. on Tuesdays and Fridays or Saturdays.
And, last but not least... at the market, don't forget to check this stand displaying yummy quiches and tartes salees (if my memory serves me well, there use to be around 17 sorts of quiches and the less dodgy tartes salees, the latter being my favourite). Usually, this stand is just across Gavilan bookshop, stationery shop Club.

While walking there, you'll spot on some trails information boards about the species, maps and also warnings. Most important is concerning the meadows.
- Do not feed the birds
- Do not let the dogs loose
- Don't throw anything in the park nor in the ponds, there are bins everywhere
The meadows of Woluw? park are esp. those around the water that is closest to the WSP-Auderghem bridge. You'll recognise the meadows for they not cut regularly. In the contrary of the water surface where you'd spot the swans (you'll reach it if you enter via the main entry point), they are left intact and are only cut once a year, to let fauna and flora develop. This is a whole world whose inhabitants nurtures each other. Humidity and long grass are there to let insects grow and live. The meadows are also a place for ducks of all kinds where to find food. Also, that is the reason why it is asked to not let loose the dogs.
Do not feed the birds because when you give them bread & that there is some left in the water, it will go rotten and bring botulism disease. The ducks will just die after painful agony.
Just some basic cautions, it will still be pleasant to walk in there after long hours at work...

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In summer, even your flip-flops are OK. On rainy days, I'd advise to wear walking shoes if you want to walk for hours, because of slippery mud on the dirty paths.
Photo Equipment: Camera to shoot trees, landscape and close-ups of the squirrels, the swans...
Miscellaneous: A good book is needed if you plan to spend a whole afternoon lazying on those grassy slopes, in spring and winter, i.e.

This used (and still uses) to amaze me. The tree branch is broken, the tree is leaning but it still blossoms...
Quite every time I walk in the park, I check whether it is lush or not... And it still is...
You can find it in the meadows of Woluw? park, the ones that are close to the WSP-Auderghem bridge. You'll recognise the meadows for they not cut regularly.
