May 25th, 2016
Takino National Goverment Park (滝野すずらん丘陵公園) is located in Minami ward, Sapporo city and was founded in 1983. This park is a quite large and is area of about 400 ha. About 600,000 visitors come, and it is a popular park. This park has 3 entrances, Taki-no-moriguchi Entrance (滝の森口), Keiryuguchi Entrance (渓流口) and Masumiguchi Entrance (鱒見口), and it is roughly divided into 4 areas, Central Zone, Keiryu Zone, Taki-no-Mori Zone East Area and Taki-no-Mori Zone West Area. The Takino National Goverment Park is known for enjoying a whole hill and is a famous place for tulips. It is in full bloom from late May to early June. Addmision is charged and a parking lot is paid.
The tulips are planted in the Central Zone, and visitors have to enter the entrance of the Keiryu Zone. The visitors must walk for about 30 minutes if the entrance is wrong because each entrances are not connected at the park. The Central Zone has Central Gate and East Gate, and the visitors can reach to the Country Garden (カントリーガーデン) with the tulips from each entrances. I visited there via the East Gate. The East Gate is decorated by circular pansies and welcome visitors. I was interested that there were a chair made of plants and gateposts made of the pansies near the East Gate.
About 200 kinds of the tulips with about 250,000 are planted at the Country Garden. It is roughly divided into 2 areas, lines of the tulips are planted around the upper hill, the tourists can enjoy colourful tulips. The tulips like pointillism are planted on the bottom of the hill, and those are amazing! Other visitors said "More Beautiful than Expected !" or "Too Great !", and the tulips are great afer all.
Except the tulips, there are the Kodomo-no-Tani (子どもの谷) and the Mori-no-Sumika (森のすみか) that are amusement places for children. Falls are beautifull at Mizu-no-Hiroba, too. Family visitors can enjoy this park, too.
