子連れには非常におすすめな公園です。ボートに乗ったり、散歩したり。 ハンバーガーがとても美味しいのでぜひ食べてほしい! This is an architected lake but the park has a lots of nature. You can play boat and swan boat. As I climbe the hill, there are several activitie's spot. The best spot I think is the humberger shop! Taste is terrific😀

A lovely lake in a park-like setting. When in-bloom the rose garden is worth visiting. Visitors from the city will enjoy the environment. Unfortunately the facilities are run down; maintenance, repair and upkeep are seriously lacking.

There's a beautiful lake to see and boat on if you'd like to, several museums (art museum, house museum) to explore, little shops and restaurants, and lots of walking room. Lots of beautiful flowers too!

Fun to ride the boats with family members. Also flower fields are pretty and a good 1/2 day excursion spot.

Save your 100 yen unless you like uber-cute French illustrations and skip the Musee Peynet. Try the fried octopus balls at the fast food stand beside the lake.
