Nice park to take a walk or just sit for a while. Was quiet on Saturday, away from the market. The park is pretty, even in winter, there were a few musicians playing and the children's play area looks like it would keep kids amused for an hour or so.

We saw this after we were done at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government building and headed on over. The park is very clean and so nice and peaceful. Great to walk through or enjoy your time in the sun and people watch as you take a break between Temples, shopping and eating.

There is nothing magic about this park, just a large, quiet place to stroll. It is popular for lunch-goers working in the skyscrapers nearby and you may find people playing Pokemon-Go here, so much so that the park authorities have issued guidance to them not to enter fenced areas or disturb passersby.

I found this park as a great place to jogging in the morning, safe and not crowded. There is kids playground can be used and my son likes it very much. There is also jogging tracks to follow for easy measurement.

Over by the Government buildings there is a park that offers walks, seats and cafes and food vans. Very attractive gardens and well kept. Saturdays sees an outdoor second hand or retro markets with great prices.

Very nice relaxing park close to the city. Nice and cool in shaded areas. Very popular at lunch time to sit and relax and eat. No one bothers you.

A pleasant place to spend half an hour after coming out from a visit to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building which overlooks Shinjuku Central (Chuo) Park. The park has plenty of places to sit and relax and has a nice waterfall as well as the historic Shinto 'Kumano Shrine' dating back to 1400AD that is worth a visit.

Nice walk in the early morning listening to cicades ; also saw lots of local people exercise in the early morning demonstrating once again why they live a long life, extremely healthy culture. Restaurants close by and walkable from Shinjuku Station.
