Located in Setagaya Ward, Soshigaya Park stretches on both sides of the Senkawa River, which runs north-south through the park, and is still being gradually developed.
On the east side of the Senkawa River, there are active facilities such as tennis courts and an athletic field as well as a playground, while the west side is a walking area full of greenery, including a field and Fureai-no-mori forest, where there are many trees and flowers to see.
In addition, a wetland botanical garden and a wisteria trellis are located in the southeast part of the park, where visitors can enjoy a variety of plants and flowers.
In spring, the cherry blossoms along the river are beautiful, and the cherry trees lining the west side of the Senkawa River are known as “cherry blossoms of the homeland,” making it a good place to view the cherry blossoms.
Nearby Kinuta Park is located downstream of the Senkawa River, so you can also enjoy a cherry blossom tour.
