This park is huge! It has different sections with different kinds of flowers that bloom, meaning that there is almost always something blooming year round. During late May and June, the rose garden is spectacular. It is a wonderful place for a picnic. There is...More

Beautiful park. Nice greenhouse. In Nov-dec, beautiful red colors around the park. In spring, beautiful flowers. For the young ones, the adventure park is very good. Parents can enojoy it too.

Just for a walk and to enjoy the nature. If you can visit the Sakura or Cherry Blossom season, that will be great!

噴水と薔薇と紅葉。 広々としていて混雑もせず,ゆったりと過ごすことができます。 山腹に位置することもあり,坂が有りますが,運動がてらに木立を散策すると気持ちがスッキリします。 噴水のライトアップやバラ園,寒桜の鑑賞もおススメです。 小さな植物園もあります。 遊具のある公園もあるので子供を連れて行っても楽しめると思います。 月見山から須磨の町を一望できます。 四季を通じて自然を満喫できます。 噴水を見ながら食事もできるので長居できます。 Autumn leaves and rose and fountain. It is possible you do not even crowded you are spacious, have a relaxed time. There is also be located on a hillside, there is a hill, but the feeling...More

Sorry to see such a decline in the care of this lovely park. However it is still special and worth a visit. The entire area has more or less outgrown itself. A pity.

I just like going here for the walking paths and the water fountains. That's just my personal preference. Not really a tourist destination, though.
