A big draw during hanami, the quiet city oasis of Maruyama Park boasts many cherry trees, blooming with color during the spring time. If you're exploring the area, the park makes a good place to stop and have a picnic away from the city bustle, and a peaceful stroll through the grounds reveals a duck pond and babbling streams. The star attraction of the park however, is the enormous weeping cherry tree, blooming spectacularly in spring, and illuminated after nightfall to striking effect. If visiting during the cherry blossom season, prepare for big crowds and high-spirited revelry deep into the night.

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.
The entrance fee is very reasonable. Awesome experience to be very near to (they are in glass cage) magnificent lion, hokkaido brown bear, huge polar bears, cute sea lion and super cute penguin! The place provides a lot of super clean toilets, and also a resting place. My kids really had a great time there.
