Gifu Prefecture Hundred Years Park with plenty of nature where you can learn by moving your body (Part 1)
“Gifu Prefectural 100 Years Park” was created to commemorate the 100th anniversary in Gifu Prefecture. It is a park with a vast site of 100 hectares. You can enjoy walking in the forest and cycling while feeling the beauty of the four seasons, such as spring cherry blossoms, fresh greenery, early summer irises, and autumn leaves. Events that touch the plants of the park, such as nature observation meetings and workshops held in the park, are also attractive. First of all, here are five reasons why you can enjoy "Gifu Prefectural Hundred Years Park" where you can relax in the forest, move your body, and enjoy a variety of ways.
You can ride a bicycle course full of nature
There is a 2,600m long cycling course where you can enjoy the exhilaration of nature. Running in seasonal scenery at the speed of a bicycle that feels the wind is a bit different from walking. Bicycle rental is also available at the north and south entrances.
You can enjoy the brightly colored autumn leaves
Momijien, located on the south side of the park, is a place where the whole area turns red in autumn. On a sunny day, the contrast between the blue sky and autumn leaves is very beautiful and photogenic. In autumn parks, the trees turn red, orange, and yellow in various colors, and are rich in color.
You can test your physical strength while having fun
There is a playground equipment that can measure various physical strengths, such as stretch pillars and parallel bars, at the “Physical Strength Improvement Corner” on the west side of the park. Many of the physical strength measurements that are a little nostalgic for adults, I just want to do it. Why not compete with your friends and family?
Let your dog play at ease
The spacious dog run is divided into large dogs and small dogs, so dogs of any size can run around safely. It is also a place for communication between dogs and owners.
Athletic and playful
The Trim Square on the east side of the park is an athletic corner where children can play plenty. This is a place where you can move freely and expand your imagination freely. If you try each and every attraction, you feel totally adventurous.
