One of those places I would like to go back and spend more time. Bathroom a little sketchy, though. Very manicured. Only time I was there was on the way to and from the Flower Festival.

Hijiyama Park was a lovely peaceful park that was easy to find (we put the location in google maps prior to leaving the hotel). It was a nice place to sit back and take in the peaceful surroundings after a sad day at the Peace Memorial. You can buy fish food and feed the carp which my partner loved. If... More

The first night we went walking up to a small park, Hijiyama park, where we could see the cherry blossoms and lots of people sitting on large tarps put there to reserve their space after dinner. They were eating bento boxes or homemade meals and enjoying the colors. Small grassy area right next to the Manga Library but plenty of... More

This feels less like a park and more like a hilly bit of Hiroshima that could not easily be built upon. If you are feeling lazy, you can avoid the steps on the western side and use the escalator from the subway station. The area around the art gallery is better in terms of landscaping. There is an interesting military... More

Perhaps it was because of the spectacular cherry blossoms we saw in Hijiyama Park (we were there in the first week of April, 2016), but I have more pleasant memories of this park than other TripAdvisor reviewers. It was a bit haphazard, I agree, but I think that was partly the geography (it's hilly) and the road system. It seems... More

Not one of the best parks we had visited in Japan , rather average, well kept but seemed lacking something not sure what just not as good a feeling as other parks we have visited - next to a very busy road as well.

I felt this place was a little over rated. A fairly large park but next to busy street so you never got a calming effect. If you have spare time and are in the area I would suggest to go. I just would not go out of your way.

A quiet place to reflect -- very green, situated on a hill. Provides very nice views of the city. Its hard to believe you are in a metropolitan city. Easy to find from the Peace Park, with an escalator situated on one end of the park.(i guess north end). Definitely a place to go to see views of the city.
