The impressive Oi Futo Central Seaside Park is a marine park managed by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Bureau of Ports and Harbors in Shinagawa and Ota wards.
It is located along the Keihin Canal near Oi Pier, just over the canal from the Oi Racecourse.
The park consists of two blocks across the road: the “Sports Forest” where sports facilities are mainly located, and the “Nagisa Forest” where greenery and waterfront can be enjoyed.
The Sports Forest has some of the best facilities in Tokyo, including a 400-meter-long, eight-course Class III certified track and field, six softball fields, and tennis courts.
There are also open spaces such as Sakura Plaza, a cherry blossom viewing spot, and the “Seseragi no Mori” (small stream forest) where you can observe insects.
Nagisa-no-mori is a forest and tidal flat with facilities for forest bathing, bird watching, rock fishing, barbeques, and other activities in nature. Both parks can be enjoyed by families and serious sports enthusiasts alike.
Various sightseeing spots are located nearby, including Oi Racecourse, Shinagawa Aquarium, Wild Bird Park, and Heiwajima Park.
