- Plenty happens at this royal park, opened in 1859 by Queen Victoria - there are funfairs on bank holidays, tennis courts, a boating lake, a children's zoo, playgrounds, bicycle tracks and a cafe. It's a lovely place to come for a stroll along the river on a clear, dry day. The Peace Pagoda - a gilt Buddha on the riverside built in 1985 - is a memorial to the victims of the Hiroshima bombing.
