The Shinjuku Central (Chuo) Park does not look large on the map but is surprisingly large when you walk it. There is a waterfalls area where there are often skateboarders practicing their tricks, fun to watch. There are many bathrooms around the grounds, handy for those in need.

Nice park to take a walk or just sit for a while. Was quiet on Saturday, away from the market. The park is pretty, even in winter, there were a few musicians playing and the children's play area looks like it would keep kids amused for an hour or so.

We saw this after we were done at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government building and headed on over. The park is very clean and so nice and peaceful. Great to walk through or enjoy your time in the sun and people watch as you take a break between Temples, shopping and eating.

There is nothing magic about this park, just a large, quiet place to stroll. It is popular for lunch-goers working in the skyscrapers nearby and you may find people playing Pokemon-Go here, so much so that the park authorities have issued guidance to them not to enter fenced areas or disturb passersby.

I found this park as a great place to jogging in the morning, safe and not crowded. There is kids playground can be used and my son likes it very much. There is also jogging tracks to follow for easy measurement.

Over by the Government buildings there is a park that offers walks, seats and cafes and food vans. Very attractive gardens and well kept. Saturdays sees an outdoor second hand or retro markets with great prices.

Very nice relaxing park close to the city. Nice and cool in shaded areas. Very popular at lunch time to sit and relax and eat. No one bothers you.
