Ageo Parks – Ageo City is one of our favourite cities in Saitama. It has plenty of things to do for children and adults alike. There is so much to do in fact I have split this blog post into two; one on outdoor locations and one on indoor locations. I find Ageo is particularly baby and toddler-friendly. Here is a list of our favourite places to go outdoors in Ageo City with our preschooler, toddler and baby. They are all mapped on a Google MyMap at the bottom of the article. (Written in 2013, last update 2020).

During the 2020 Coronavirus State of Emergency in Saitama Prefecture you cannot use any of the sports facilities in Ageo Parks.
