Kiba Park is a metropolitan park with a total area of 24.2 hectares, centering on the area called Kiba in Koto-ku, Tokyo.

The Kiba area flourished from the Edo period (1603-1867) to the Showa period (1926-1989) as a “lumber town” supplying lumber to Edo and Tokyo.

The park is divided into three areas, South, North, and Central, each of which is connected by a public road, but they are conveniently connected by the Kiba Park Bridge, the symbol of the park, and the view from the bridge is exhilarating.

Fureai Hiroba in the south area is a large grassy plaza, ideal for picnics with the family or barbecues with friends at the barbecue plaza near the center of the park.

The park is also full of other greenery with plants and trees. The pine trees in the Japanese-style garden maintained at the entrance of Kiba Park are very well maintained and are a popular hidden attraction.

The mallet golf (Park Golf) course located in Kiba Park is set in an area rich in nature with trees.

The surrounding area is home to many cultural facilities, with the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo just north of the park and many libraries within 1 km of the park.
