Outside of the cherry blossom season, it's just another park in Japan. Lots of green and nice walking paths, but a bit too quiet somehow. It does not worth a visit, if there is no cherry blossom. Unless you are looking for a nice place to picnic with river view. The city has much more interesting to do.

There's a nice spot during the cherry blossom bloom where you can go up a little Hill and be surrounded by the blossoms. But it's quite small and there was some development going on when I went in April 2019. Worth a quick look while checking out Sumida river which is very beautiful and it's close to the Skytree also.

It’s a quiet and nice park. You can walk around and enjoy the beautiful scenery while walking along the Sumida riverside. It’s a perfect place to relax.

Tokyo has plenty of beautiful parks where you can take a walk down the river side and enjoy the beautiful scenery, particularly during cherry blossom season! Sumida park is the perfect place to sit, enjoy the views and enjoy local eats. It is also really close to the Tokyo SkyTree, go here before or after your visit.

Among one of the most beautiful parks in Tokyo this time of year ( Sakura blossoms are blooming). Also not particularly crowded and is a tranquil and all-around beautiful place.
Should you be around during spring the street vendors food is excellent as well.
Good luck in Japan!
