Wander between ponds and islands connected by elegant stone bridges at Ohori Park, once the site of a moat for a nearby castle whose ruins still lay nearby. Also within walking distance, Fukuoka Art Museum sits at the park's southeast corner.

  • The Ohori Park is set around a pond. The park is nicely landscaped. TIP also visit the Japanese garden for a few yen you come into a very nice garden. This garden also has a so-called dry garden.

  • What a beautiful place Japan is. Clean. Friendly people. A beautiful park we stopped briefly on our tour with our cruise ship. Definately recommend  more »
  • It was one of the happiest moments of my trip when I walked through the park alone on a rainy day and walked into a café and looked out! It's a very peaceful place

  • Very relaxed and extensive local park with a particularly lovely zen garden (for which overseas tourists are offered a small discount on the inexpensive admission fee). It's a lovely way to see a more local side to a Japanese city as families and local residents clearly use it extensively, but without it ever feeling overcrowded. There's also a small stadium (where we saw a local American football team playing a Sunday game), as well as the ruins of old Fukuoka Castle. We didn't visit it, but the Fukuoka Art Museum is also located in the park, between the zen garden and the castle ruins.
  • Gorgeous serene park to wander around. Very quiet and peaceful. The water reflected the city and clouds. Spent 2 hours walking around, sitting, enjoying the scenery and runners.
  • Highly recommended! A beautiful spot of tranquility in the middle of the city. There is an islet in the middle of the lake which you can walk to and enjoy the peace and beauty of the park. There is a Starbucks and cafes around. The walk to the park was especially beautiful with the hundreds of lotus growing in the moat!
  • One of the best park I have visited so far, a very relax place to casually walk around enjoying the great scenery and some cool breeze (even in summer). Some water activities available too like boating. And there's also a kids playground nearby. Overall the park are suitable for all ages and even pets are welcome.
  • So many kids playing together!! My kid makes friends every time we go there to Whale park. It's never boring for him. The trails are beautiful, and you can find bustling areas with people jogging, or very serene areas (lotus flowers in the moat), depending on what you like. There is also a nice snack shop that allows you to get out of the heat for a bit.
