Athletic Playground at Isanuma Park, Kawagoe

      No Comments on Athletic Playground at Isanuma Park, Kawagoe

Isanuma Park’s athletic playground equipment is a great fun place to burn off some energy for the kids (and some calories for me!).  What the Japanese call “athletic playgrounds” is what we call “adventure playgrounds” in Ireland.  Isanuma’s playground is geared for 6 to 12 year olds, but I think kids from 3 up are well able for the challenge.  And its a great challenge for adults too.  You often find adults working out on the equipment when there are few kids around.

Despite its location beside an industrial park on one side and a marsh on the other, Isanuma Park is a popular place for families. It is not particularly big either with the main attraction being the athletic playground. In summer the splash pool and BBQ areas are popular too. You can read more about Isanuma Park in summer on this blog too.

Some of the equipment is pictured below. Other equipment they have that is not pictured include rock and other type of climbing walls, climbing nets, net tunnels, obstacle courses amongst others.

Parking is free and plentiful. On a weekend it is easy to get a parking spot on the road that runs along the side of the Industrial Park. It is quite hard to get a parking spot there on a weekday though. On a weekday I recommend the parking lot on the marsh side of the park.

Isanuma Park is one of the many places you can view Ageo fireworks from.

    What a lovely looking park!We have a great one here in our little town but just heard that the mayor wants to level it out to make another bloody football pitch(we have a few already).I am fuming and wonder if there is anything that can be done to stop him.We only have another very small park in the town.I am so so angry!

    Ooops,sorry,this turned into a bit of a rant!

      Thats awful, they shouldn’t be tearing playgrounds down, but building new ones. Our town only has one decent playground, but thankfully the neighbouring cities have great parks and playgrounds. I would say there are other mothers who feel the same as you about the park, hopefully somebody can make the mayor reconsider.

    There is a great variation in playgrounds from village to village. I’m sure a lot of it is to fo with local groups lobbying and raising money within each parish, but as we know the majority of mums just don’t have that extra time. Good luck.
