The impressive Oshima Komatsugawa Park straddles Edogawa and Koto wards.
It was established by the urban redevelopment project for disaster prevention in the Koto area, and as the eastern edge of the Koto Delta area, it serves as an evacuation plaza in case of disaster.
On the west side across the old Nakagawa River, there are sports facilities such as a baseball field and “Wanzaka Plaza,” and on the east side, there is a vast lawn called “Freedom Plaza,” a barbecue area, an athletic field, and “Kaze no Hiroba” for jogging, making it a place where families can enjoy picnicking and exercising together.
Although the plazas are separated by the river, they are conveniently accessible by bridges such as the Momiji Ohashi and Sakura Ohashi. All locations are about a 3-minute walk from Higashi-Oshima Station.
The park is also connected to the jogging course on the Arakawa riverbed, so those who are fit can go jogging across the park.
There are many parks in the neighborhood, including Kameido Chuo Park and the Arakawa riverbed, so you can tour the parks without any difficulty.
