When I visited, the park was still hosting late autumn vegetation. This made it a pretty place to take a stroll in.

This is a lovely park with river, shrines, beautiful gardens and lovely statues peppered throughout. Lots of people out walking in the morning, and worthy of a good hour exploring, or coming back more than once.
