  • The Fountain of the Sea

The fountain of the sea measuring 48 meters in circumference is reminiscent of the crater of a volcano . Noguchi is making a water sculpture here that marks his deep taste for fountains, which he studied with attention all his life for the feeling of life they breathe. The jets of the fountain of the sea can reach 25 meters in height. On certain occasions, at nightfall, sounds and lights embellish the show.

Open from April 29 to October 20.

The cherry forest, to the east of the park, is a vast playground made up of seven areas, all of which are interconnected by small paths. The children run from one to the other and take full advantage of the games designed like real sculptures by Noguchi.
