Verny Park, Yokosuka

4.1
#1 of 31 in Parks in Yokosuka
Watch docked warships at the site of the first modern Japanese arsenal at Verny Park, a seaside area covered with roses, carrying the name of its French designer, Léonce Verny. Yokosuka US Navy base and a Japanese Navy area across the bay provide a good opportunity to photograph docking destroyers, moored submarines, and huge cargo supply ships. The park abounds with many varieties of roses, meticulously labeled so you can remember which one you liked most. Take a relaxing stroll and observe locals walking their dogs, then pop into the small museum, which gives a good insight in the history of the area and its great industrial heritage.

  • Shioiri station and Yokosuka station near Bay facing the wide park is. Visible warships is unique to Yokosuka, but can enjoy flowers in rose season.

  • You can see from there overlooking the verny Park in front of station and naval submarines and maritime self-defense force fleet activities Yokosuka. And we want to go to Yokosuka in assisting our customers in China were requested. So can go in and close to the U.S. military facility, provided your permit in advance. And dark light light popped on the way back, but also thought that the good atmosphere in our parks. It is recommended you have a chance.

  • Awesome place for a run or walk. Beautiful views. Adjacent to an Aeon shopping mall and Starbucks for a post-hike snack.  more »

  • A quiet and beautiful park. I'm sure it's even more beautiful in the spring when flowers are blooming, as the park is mostly rose bushes with few tress. Very much a walk through type of park with views of the harbour. There are toilet facilities, a French cafe and vending machines in the park but it's probably better to go to nearby Aeon Mall for a bite to eat.
  • Very relaxing waterfront boardwalk with a Rose garden. The Cherry Blossom is very beautiful here too.
  • Awesome view, has playground for the little kids. Right next to Starbucks, the Sakura are amazing, well manicured.
  • With a beautiful view of the ocean and both the Japanese and American naval bases as well as quite the impressive garden this park offers something for everyone.
  • Quaint little park by the seaside, with a French flower garden in the middle. Nothing especially standout - unless you are naval or WWII aficionado, in which case there is a row of memorials to the IJN and especially battleships Yamashiro and Nagato; a museum about the park's namesake at the far western end; and an absolutely spectacular view of both the JMSDF and US Fleet Activites bases. Absolutely free.
