Maruyama Park (Sapporo)3.3
Maruyama Park, adjacent to a primeval forest, has long been a good cherry blossom viewing spot in Sapporo City. In 1875, the first 150 trees were planted alone the shrine walkway in commemoration of the early founders of Sapporo. In spring, many people flock this park to enjoy the long-awaited opportunities for outing and cherry-blossom viewing. The best time is from late April to mid-May.

Take the bus, this zoo is at the top of a hill. Foreigners may need their passport to get in? (I didn't need it, but another American I spoke to said she did.) The animals all seem to be well cared for and chill. I wish they had capybaras, but their red panda exhibit was phenomenal.

Roughly one hour walk from susukino, the park is very large with variety of flowers blooming in late may. There is also a zoo and religious shrines in the vicinity. Good way to kill some time and enjoy nature.

A great park in Sapporo. With large pathways and tall trees. I enjoyed it immensely. It leaves a peaceful feeling.
There is a shrine in the middle of the park, which also was beautiful to visit. A peaceful way to spend the morning.

Huge park combined with Zoo, Baseball field, and grand shrine in the middle of it. Definitely beautiful during Spring Sakura season or to see autumn foliage.
