二階堂氏の山城跡地を公園にしています。愛宕山登り釈迦堂川→中央園地→新池付近を散策しました。桜咲いており散歩コースにはいいです。通り沿いの赤い橋見える付近が雰囲気あります。釈迦堂川の桜はここでなく国道4号西側です。

遊具があるから、子供が遊ぶのに良いかなーと思って行ったのですが、思ったより広くて最初は戸惑いました。でも、軽い山歩き的な感じで楽しむことが出来たし、駐車場はあちこちにあるし、とても良かったです。

家族連れで、子供を自然のなかで遊ばせたり、ピクニックするには丁度良い公園ではないかと思いました。
ただ、雑草がかなり多い感じでしたね。

一番上には神社があり遊歩道が何通りもあり、ウォーキングするかたも多いです。新池では、へら鮒釣りが有名です。
