wheelchair accessible garden
Jun 2018 • Couples
I went to Yurigahara Park with my husband who is a wheelchair user. The buses, 25 and 27 from Asabu Station have ramps.
The park is wheelchair-friendly. We went early June so the the lilies were not in bloom yet. However, there are lots of other beautiful flowers. It is so nice to be near nature.

Nice park to relax or meander
Jun 2018 • Family
We enjoyed a few hours at Yurigahara Park which is about a 22 minute train ride from JT.

The train station on arrival is 1 long block from the park and can see the entrance when you get off the train. Make sure you cross over the line first if you're coming from the city.

It does have a good playground for kids on the far side.

We took the train ride in the park and it was quite expensive for a fairly mundane circuit and in hindsight I'd have preferred to walk. Ok to support the park and get your bearings.

The flowers were out early June so it was very pleasing. There are nice large tracts of grass for picnics, games or just lying down to have a nap.

Trail meander through the park so you do your own loops.

They have a small dining snack outlet venue in the mini train station and a nursery in the park but not much else.

There is an old stone tower kids love to climb up.

There species names of plants are in English but common names no.

A nice half day activity.

Dont know what to do. The flowers were not blooming at all. The place was so huge and honestly I didnot know what to do inside there.... But, the cost entering there was so cheap and the place was suitable for elder people.

Nice park
May 2017 • Friends
The park is near Yurigahara station. It was very windy when we went there. Nevertheless, the park was filled with different flower fields, very lovely. There is a train which you can hop on to go round the park instead of walking.

Nice park with blooms all year
Sep 2016 • Couples
September is dahlia season-- who knew? The garden had a whole collection of them in bloom, and a nice little train starting at 10 am to see it all without walking too much. If you like to walk, the trails and paths are nice and accommodating for walkers and joggers.
The JR station is 3 blocks away and cost under $3 to get back to Sapporo station.

Public Park with small lavender field
Jul 2016 • Friends
The park is located near to a train station which is great. However, I came here by riding bicycle from Asabu area (terminal station of Namboku line) which took nearly an hour. There were not many visitors and it is located quite far away from city. The park is very large and have several zone. Some part of the park are not free for public such as the Chinese garden area. The lavender was not as spectacular as on in Furano as it is just a small bushes not a large field.

Lovely stroll on a cool summer day
Jul 2014 • Couples
We were blessed with an exceptionally cool crisp summer day with blue skies and a SONshiny day (24 degrees Celsius) . This inspite of the typhoon Neoguri which lashed okinawa, kyushu and the main island Honshu.

The park was fairly empty when we visited on Friday afternoon 11 July 2014. Beautiful flowers and a really great place to stroll and enjoy the fresh air and nature. The place was not as structured as the fields in Furano - so we felt more at one with nature because of the sense of freedom and wider spaces.

The Conservatory is worth paying for. However the World Gardens was rather disappointing and we would skip it if we ever get to visit this park again, the German garden didnt have much character - there was this horrible crow that seemed to fly to and fro this place as if it wanted to announce its territorial claim over this German Garden. Ugh. Dislike these crows.
The Chinese and Jap Garden were so so, not much growing in them. I am not sure if its better in Spring.

However, the rest of the park (which is free) is so much better as the flowers were so healthy and pretty. Lovely for strolling and relaxing. We only managed to stroll half of the park and finished our visit with the Lily Train which was fun. The little train leaves every half hour (payable) and chugs round the whole park in about 15-20mins. There is a little cafe where the Lily Train departs.

We took about 2.5hrs during this visit. If we visit Sapporo again, we will definitely visit this park again and maybe have more time to walk and enjoy the whole place at a leisurely pace. Maybe buy sandwiches and sit on the benches to enjoy the surroundings.

Getting to the park by public transport - We managed through trial and error as the Tourist office left out some info. Hope our experience with the transport will help those who wish to visit:

JR SAPPORO STATION TO YURIGAHARA PARK:
1) Take the subway green Namboku Line to the last station AZABU (we could use our pre paid Suica card). Journey is around 12 mins.
2) Alight from the train and walk towards the NORTH EXIT NO. 7
3) Exit No. 7 brings you straight to the Chuo bus terminal.
4) Go to Bus stop No. 1.
5) Take either Bus No. 25 (departs once on the hour every hour) or Bus 27 which departs 20mins or 45mins on the hour, every hour (weekday). The bus timetable for both weekdays and weekends is at the bus stop. Its about 9 stops to YURIGAHARA PARK.

Imp Tip: Get a japanese brochure from the Sapporo tourist Info so you can show the bus driver where you want to alight. Its Yurigahara Koen stop.

6) The journey is ¥210 per way pp. Get a bus ticket when you board and pay when you alight. We were able to use our Suica card to pay for the bus fare. Tap the card when you board and tap again when you alight.

7) The journey is about 20mins. The bus stops opposite the park.

RETURNING FROM YURIGAHARA PARK TO JR SAPPORO STATION:
1) Bus 27 departs every 26mins or 46mins on the hour, every hour from the park. The bus stop is just outside the entrance, on the same side of the park. I think Bus 25 deoarts on the hour, every hour.

2) You can alight at the Bus Terminal and take the staircase down to the subway.

or you can alight one stop before the bus terminal, then walk to the subway entrance a short distance away.

3) Take the subway green line Namboku to Sapporo station.

The above is valid at the time of our visit & I have no idea there will be changes when you visit. So its best to check again.

We enjoyed the visit and it really relaxed us :):)

Impressed!
Jul 2013 • Family
Cool breeze in the mid of summer made us decide to visit this lovely park. A short stroll from the car park led us to the lovely rose garden, then crossed the lily train track to the vast lavender field. The lily was started to bloom in different colors. We finally took the park train to see the whole park in another perspective. A lovely time to spare.
