The present castle was built in 1790 in a Louis XVI style. The first owner was 'C.A. Della Faille'. In 1910 the 'Kreglinger' family became the owner of the castle together with a 16 ha park surrounding it. Another 48 ha part of the park was sold to the city of Antwerp to create a new park open to the public. On 18 December 1962, the city of Antwerp also became the official owner of the Kreglinger domain and the castle.
