  • Big park for Japan! During Cherry Blossom season it is quite full and popular. This use to be an old airport, hence there is so much space. I especially like running near the small pond. There are small festivals and events held here throughout the year too.
  • Great park for families. The playground is excellent - lots of choice and suited to all ages. In the summer there is a wading river and a good portion of it is in the shade. On the grounds is the superb Aviation museum and a library, among other public facilities. Parking is charged but very reasonably priced. Spaces are hard to come by though as the park is very popular.
