Located in Ota Ward, this park is one of the largest parks with a pond in Tokyo. The total area of the park is about 6.7 ha, of which Senzoku Pond is about 4 ha.

Senzoku Pond is a spring-fed pond, and although the number of water sources has decreased from four in the past, spring water from the Shimizukubo Benzaiten still flows into the pond through underground channels.

In the Edo period, Hiroshige Utagawa depicted the pond in his ukiyoe work “Meisho Edo hyakkei” (One hundred Famous Views of Edo), and the scenery by the pond is magnificent. In spring, the pond is famous for its cherry blossoms, and the view from a boat or a walk along the “Ike-no-michi” path along the lakeshore is exceptional.

On the north side of the pond, visitors can cross a wooden bridge to see aquatic plants, and on the east side are the graves of Mr. and Mrs. Kaishu Katsu, who loved this pond.

The surrounding area is dotted with historical sites of Ota Ward, and if you follow the road in the southwest direction, you will find the Tama River.
