Walking through the gardens at Shanadar park was relaxing and beautiful. Be sure to go up on top of the little building inside the park to the left for a great view of the park and surrounding area.

This is a large park with among others a viewing tower and a small lake. It is probably very nice in summer, but when I visited on a weekday in December, not a lot was going on.
