The theme park at Heysel in Brussels that contains miniatures of European landmarks, will be kept in the new Neo shopping and leisure centre.
The water park OcĂ©ade will remain open until at least October 2018.
Neo, however, has no place for OcĂ©ade, said Philippe Close, Brussels councillor in charge of tourism, who is also chair of Brussels Expo, the non-profit behind the NEO project. The agreement with OcĂ©ade allows it to stay as long as possible without hindering the building plans.
âIâm happy to be able to tell staff that they will be able to carry on for longer,â said Thierry Meeus, CEO of the company that operates both attractions. OcĂ©ade was originally planned to close at the end of this year.
