If you cant catch bus, taxi will cost ard 1700yen from Matsumoto station.
Just take note that the only bus leave this park at 10:25am and 2:25pm. Or else you need to walk down. It is abt 4km to Matsumoto station.
Park is big, lots of play area for children, very limited foods though.
Luge is only operating on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Do check their operating hours.
Luge ride is cheap, children pay 1000yen for 6rides, adult is 2000yen.
Fun ride for children and adults too.
There is a small natural museum showing wildlife of that area.

Went early in the morning and had the park to ourselves. Great views over to the mountains. Well organised walking tracks and Autumn leave colours. A good early morning walk free of other tourists.

This is a lovely park that has some colourful trees, a bobsled, playground for younger kids and a run down small zoo. It is worth the effort if you have young kids.

Beautiful park with great playground and great views! There is also a free petting zoo.
Park accesible by bus 45 leaving the station at 10am. Although it is worth noting there is only one bus back at approx 2:30pm. We took the bus there then walked home. Good choice as the park is up a big hill!
Take a picnic, only food options were a hot dog and hot chips and a drinks vending machine.

We loved walking around the park for half a day. Took some food with us and bought some drinks from he many vending machines around the park and enjoyed our day. We had a 6mth old with us - but could imagine it would be fantastic for the toddlers and bigger kids with the play grounds, "zoo", luge ride and just taking in the views and nature. Found a great place to stop for a while out of the heat and enjoy a drink and toilet stop at a wooden two story structure.
Worth a visit. Only 2 buses a day!

We spent an enjoyable half day at the park. Our 7 year old LOVED the climbing wall and ropes obstacle course. You can go up the observation tower for free to get some good views of the mountains and city below. There was also a paid "luge" course that we all enjoyed going on and a little zoo.

Note, there is no food available to purchase at the park so you may want to bring a picnic with you, but there are vending machines for drinks. To get there, there is Bus that starts at Matsumoto bus station that arrives about 10:30am, but then only one bus back to the city at about 2:30pm. If you don't catch this last bus, you will need to walk back to the city, which isn't too far (1-2km).

We really enjoyed our time here and would highly recommend it for families!

For tourists, this park is too far from downtown (it'd take quite a while to walk up the large hill). But, if you can get a ride (or is there a bus?), it is super awesome! Good views, huge play area with jungle gyms and playgrounds, and even a type of rock climbing wall, with long slides.

For much of the year, the park also hosts an outdoor flea market on Sundays, once or twice a month. This flea market is focused on families. Families reserve a spot to put out all their old kids stuff to sell at dirt cheap prices to clear out their house! I can't wait until the flea markets start again.

Matsumoto Alps Park is located north of the train station. It is quite a hike uphill to get there. Only 2 daily buses operate from the train station to the park south entrance. The views of the Alps are awesome and are better appreciated from the tower, which admission is free.
