Besshonuma Park, Minami Ward, Saitama City
I read an article on the DailyPost with suggestions for surviving NaBloPoMo. One of them was plagiarise yourself. Duly noted and executing that suggestion in this post! Not a particularly exciting post and far from detailed, but I like to give the good parks of Saitama a searchable link in English and seen as today is “Choos-day”. This one is from an old blog of mine that no longer exists.
Besshonuma Park is centrally located, only a 5 minute walk from Naka-Urawa Station on the Saikyo Line. You can also access it from Urawa Station which is on a number of lines (outlined in the access area below). The park can be reached from Ikebukuro or Shinjuku in about 30 minutes. One of the many attractions of the park is its design. The playground is well spread out and is encircled by trees, which give shade in the summer and protection from winds throughout the year.
Other attractions include (you will find some pictured in the library);
- Infant and toddler friendly playground equipment
- Vending machines
- A restaurant on site
- A wading stream during the summer
- Walking/jogging course
- Cherry blossoms
- Autumn foliage including gingko (and a carpet of yellow) and maple trees
- Free parking
