In front of the country house a flowery ornamental garden was laid out, as a result of which the castle was clearly visible from Torhoutsesteenweg. It was especially Cécile de Renne, wife of Stanislas, who insisted on the creation of this garden. The garden has a strongly geometric layout with a variation of footpaths, lawns and colourful flower beds. At the end of the lines of view in the garden stone vases were placed on plinths. Several deciduous trees were planted at the edge of this open garden. These trees constitute a nice transition to the surrounding woodland, which is mainly planted with conifers. A bit further from the castle, hidden behind the trees, the walled vegetable garden has been preserved. This garden is now used as a herb garden. Two intersecting footpaths divide the garden in four zones. The garden contains over four hundred different plant species, ranging from spices and medical herbs to bee plants. Numerous fruit trees line the walls.
The City Council of Bruges was able buy the area of over 40 ha in 1981 and had the ornamental garden redesigned on the basis of the original concept. The castle was converted into a party hall.
