This park is definite worth a visit. There is some interesting history behind this park as well. You get a great view of the river and of Zurich across the river. You can also watch some locals playing chess on giant chess sets.

The Lidenhofplatz is a square on top of one Zurich's hills. You have great views of the city and the Limmat. There's a giant chess table and you can see people playing. It's just 10-15min walking from the lake.
