The parks here are WONDERFUL! They're wonderfully dangerous, too! Zip lines, giant slides, metal and wood....and we've not seen anyone seriously hurt at any of them. We've been amazed at the tiny kids that can navigate the zip lines.
Most of the parks we've been at combine great playing areas with serene nature viewing areas. The Statue of Liberty Park (can't remember the Japanese name for it) does this well. When we drove up there were about 10 Sr. Citizens playing a sort of croquet game, we could see the statue across a big pond, fishermen, jogging paths, benches for reflection and lots of play things.
We plan to go back on a still day and get a photo with the reflection, sunlight etc....
We've still not made it to see Lady Liberty in NYC....but we visited her "sister" here in Japan.
It's hard to see in these pictures but this slide was LONG and TALL....and it was made of little rolling pipes rather than slide material. Zander discovered it is NOT good to get your hand or foot caught in these. It starts up on a hill, crosses a road and continues going.
