Why Hijiyama Park is special ?

Hijiyama Park is a large, forested city park on a hill overlooking the city.

Observation platforms on the south flank can be reached by car, and the bathrooms are wheelchair accessible. There is also a playground, and concession stand and several vending machines for a mid-view snack. The Museum of Contemporary Art and grounds, including a memorial fountain, statue walk, and Henry Moore installation, dominate the northern half of the park.

A quiet place to reflect -- very green, situated on a hill. Provides very nice views of the city. Its hard to believe you are in a metropolitan city. Easy to find from the Peace Park, with an escalator situated on one end of the park.(i guess north end). Definitely a place to go to see views of the city.
