Sanuki Manno Park
A recreation spot with many seasonal flowers
A popular destination for families and couples alike, Sanuki Manno Park is a 350-hectare oasis of greenery northeast of the adjoining Manno-ike Reservoir. Its facilities include playgrounds, a cycling course (rentals available), a campsite, a miniature golf course, and a barbecue area, but the vast park is best known for its variety of seasonal flowers.
Cherry blossoms, daffodils, tulips, and nemophilas bloom here in spring, hydrangeas and sunflowers take over in summer, and autumn is the season of cosmos flowers and the deep red burning bush, also known as kochia. In winter, the park’s opening hours are extended to welcome visitors for a nighttime “illumination,” in which more than 500,000 LED bulbs light the vast slopes and fields. Fireworks displays are also held on certain nights during the event period.
