Maizuru Park is right next to Ohori Park so you can visit both at the same time. It is easily accessible by bus and subway (there is a stop right outside the park).
We went when the cherry blossoms were blooming so it was great to just sit in the park, have a picnic and enjoy the flowers. We got there early (about 11am) but all the choice spots were already taken by large groups of fellow picnickers. Still, it was a large enough place to find a spot to picnic on. Many Japanese brought their own picnic baskets (some too elaborate to call a 'basket') but for tourists that didn't, there was a row of food stands selling local BBQ snacks, drinks and toys for kids.
There is a jogging track that goes around the large pond and a boat rental shed (row boats and pedal boats) next to the full service restaurant.
A great relaxing day out away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
