When I was already exhausted during whole of roaming around Osaka, I found a quite place to rest, and that is Nakanoshima Park. It is sometimes called Nakanoshima Rose Garden. It is such a huge park. It has some Roses gardens, a river view, and a a couple of beautiful bridges on sight. It is located in Kita-ku is is usually peaceful.
Nice and easily accessible park by the river. Clean and with many seating area and flowers. Good for morning walks and evening strolls. The park is safe for visitors with scenic views of the river alongside.. There are historical memorials in the park and it is well kept.
Lovely stroll close to plenty of stations (Yodoyabashi, Nakanoshima, Tenmabashi...) and to a very nice shopping street (Tenjinbashi-suji).
The location itself is pretty well located and offers you some interesting museums, architecture (at least you should visit the former Osaka town hall) and a beautiful rose garden.
