I always enjoy going to Woodward park. There's always a quiet place to practice my photography on my step daughter or anyone willing to pose for me.

If you want some motivation, visit the Woodward Park. All ages from small kids to senior citizens doing some activity. They have plenty places to seat down and enjoy the scenery.

Spent an hour walking here, best part is a little redwood grove with a stem running through. The Japanese park-within-a-park is nice but only open very limited hours.

The Japanese Garden is fairly romantic but only open limited hours. There is is a dog park. If you both own dogs might be a good ice breaker. If she likes to hike or bike it has trails.
