Shonai Ryokuchi Koen

庄内緑地公園

Shonai Ryokuchi Koen in the west of the city is one of Nagoya's largest parks.

Shonai Ryokuchi Park's large lake is a popular location for summer picnics and the large grassy areas are a venue for pick up soccer games among the Nagoya's foreign community and the base for local team Shonai FC.

Scattered around the park are a number of pieces of modern art pictured here. Besides playing football and BBQs, visitors can rent a pedal boat for a float around the lake and can also hire bicycles for a leisurely cycle around the park.

There's a children's park, tennis courts, a Rose Garden, the Green Plaza and a water fountain area to keep cool in summer. The nearest station is Shonai Ryokuchi Koen Station on the Tsurumai Line. Meitetsu Naka Otai Station is also fairly close. National Highways 162 and 63 run past the park which is adjacent to the Shonai River.
