Ohori Park - Review
When a city is as urbanised as Fukuoka is, lush green spaces are a welcome and rare retreat. This makes the landscaped fields of Ohori Park the city's most precious attraction. Beautiful and welcoming in every season, the tranquil park is built around the lake-moat of the old Fukuoka Castle, the remnants of which are on the grounds.
There's a lot to do. Visit the Art Museum there. The Japanese Garden is on the south side. Rent a vessel from the boathouse and row out the to the middle of the lake, or to one of the three islands. The Gokoku shrine is very pretty, down the pathway from a massive toriii gate.
But after all these are covered, the most satisfying activity is to simply stroll. Elegant chinese bridges link the outer two kilometre long path to the islands. The park's appeal evolves with the passing months. In spring, the cherry blossoms attract a large crowd, as does the annual fireworks display in August, when the people turn up in traditional dresses.

Ohori Park, Fukuoka-shi Reviews
It's a nice place and is suitable for any age of people. I was just here idling my time. Waking by the big lake, you can see many pigeons playing near the water while some guys trying to feed them with bread end. Also if you come after some little rain, you can see lots of mushrooms growing up from the soil and it's thrilling to see the lively landscape all around here. People jog, grab a cup of coffee, or just chat with his/her friends in the park. You can do anything here as long as you are creative enough!
Beautiful large park divided into several areas- many locals exercise here or walk their pet dogs. There is a large lake of water n the park is lush with trees n plants. Ample toilets here n also a cafe which serves coffee tea n snacks/food. Many locals after walking relax here with a cup of coffee/tea n read some novels or the newspapers. It is a good park to relax and wind down or one to refresh u first thing in the morning. There is a Wisteria grove but one can only enjoy that in spring season when they flower.
I've had a great time here with friends and kids alike. The paddle boats are fun, and it has one of the best playgrounds I've seen in a Japanese urban park in quite a while. Also, there's a Starbucks and a smoothie shop in the park to boot! It's also nearby the American embassy, if that is helpful.
Lovely park with plenty of activities and thinks to do around. Probably takes a solid hour at a normal pace to cover all of it. Great for a jog or a run. Oh, and Starbucks.
Fantastic place if you like running. The track around the lake is 2km and there are a few exercise apparatus along the way. Also good for kids with 2 playgrounds, animals and pedal boats
