Himonya Park (碑文谷公園) is a lovely place to take your young kids. Neighborhood children love the free petting zoo where they can get nose to nose with guinea pigs, rabbits and dogs; 200 yen pony rides, boat rides in the enclosed lake, and the playground. It`s beautiful for short strolls around the lake, is dog-friendly and is especially beautiful in Spring when the Sakura are in bloom. If your child loves horses, visit the Yoyogi Park ponies..
