  • This is a lovely and scenic park with lush greenery, walking trails, and even a lake. Because of the beauty of the park, it's not uncommon to find people taking pictures there for special occasions like birthdays, weddings etc. To explore the park, you could use the walking trails or hop on the train. Getting on the pedal boats on the lake is also a fun way to spend the time. It's also great that there are several shaded benches to relax on whenever you need to catch your breath.
  • Nice and big park. Wear comfy clothes! Great place for pictures and just hanging out. Ducks hang around pond and love being fed. Park also has beautiful Japanese garden. Paddle boats available as well. Zoo is within walking distance. Kids area also in this park.
