Ohori Park

Evening peeps! It's Saturday! I am back for another quick travel post. First, I am so sorry that I have missed a post last week. Anyway, I am glad to be back! Hahas. In this post, I will be sharing my experience at Ohori park. Ohori park is a big park which also happened to house a Starbucks outlet too.

The park also housed one of the Fukuoka's popular flower gardens. The park is crowded during my visit, partially due to the Spring's holidays. A running and a cycling lane were built in the park too. Since I went during the morning, I can spot people running too.

In the center of the park is a huge lake and at the center of the lake is a man-made small island where visitors can cross over using the bridge. I have embedded a video below to show you the park too. Hope you guys will get a better insight.

In the Spring season, Ohori park's flowers are blooming and notably, the famous Sakura flowers. I also took the opportunity to take a bunch of selfies too! I totally enjoyed myself during my stay. The park is about 2 minutes from the nearby Ohori-Koen station (大濠公園駅). There are also benches around the park which you can relax and rest your tired legs after hours of walking around.

More selfies! Hahas!

The huge lake

In conclusion, the park is quite big but you can actually use an hour or less to explore around. As the park is also near by Maizuru park, I think it's best to plan these 2 parks together as part of the itinerary. I have come to the end of this short travel post and I hope you guys have enjoyed reading it. Be sure to be back soon for more updates!~
