In about 1950, my husband remembers visiting Antwerp with his mother and staying in an area where there were houses for people who had been injured in the First World War. It was near a park with a boating lake.
Can you please ask your parents if they remember this, as we are visiting Antwerp soon and would like to know where the area is.
Since it's near a boating lake, as you said, I guess it's near the marina. Then, if my memory serves me well, the houses should be on Left Bank.
Now, had you seen the area ?
