The real gem in the park is the Bärenschlößle which overlooks the Bären Lake.  It offers guest a beautiful lake view and a spot to relax and soak up some sunshine in the midst of the surrounding forest and string of lakes in the valley below.   It also offers a restaurant with German and International food and a wide variety of soft drinks and beer.  You can spend an hour or two or all day enjoying the park.  On weekends and popular holidays you can ride a horse-drawn carriage.  Within minutes of leaving your car, you are in the forest with plenty of hiking trails to explore.  It is a surprise that this was not even listed on Tripadvisor's list of places to visit for Stuttgart, Germany and until now was a closely guarded "secret spot" for the locals who live in neighboring Stuttgart or Leonberg.   There is more, one needs more time to explore!
