Interior decoration, themed around the Lucky Luke Belgian comics character, features a fresco of the comics main characters on one side, and a short comics strip depicting a train attack by the Daltons on the other side. There's also a Lucky Luke statue outside of the station, near the park's eastern entrance.
Until February 26, 2012, Parc used to be a dead-end station (terminus of former lines 55 and 88), where trams would arrive from Janson on the western side of the central platform, then park in a short tunnel section south of the station, before coming back in the station for departure on the eastern side of the platform. The parking tracks are now part of the Parc to Tirou section.
The station name (French for Park) comes from the adjacent municipal park.
