  • Nice park with small lake. There is train park that is very good and is not much to go in. The museum is free and very interesting.
  • Beautiful park with lots of room for running, playing soccer or just lay under a tree. It has some cool museums inside the premises and a subway station. Over all is a great park for a fun Saturday or Sunday afternoon to have a picnic and just relax and breath some fresh air.
  • dont forget the museums around! they all worth a visit!
  • Awesome park with museums, very nice green space in the city
  • Also a Magikarp respawn :)
