This is a comprehensive park located in Kaida-cho, Aki-gun. Despite its relatively short distance from Hiroshima City, the park is very popular as a spot where visitors can play on large playground equipment while feeling the richness of nature.

The large playground complex ", a combination of camphor tree & sunflower ", is one of the best equipped playgrounds in Hiroshima Prefecture. The 40-meter long slide is very powerful. At the grass sled plaza, visitors can enjoy sledding on a slope of natural grass about 30 meters long. There is also a Chibikko Hiroba (small children's playground), where even small children can play safely.

There is also a pond inhabited by very large carp, which can be enjoyed by feeding them. Koi food can be purchased at the administration building.

The park also has a free campground, although it is far from the plaza where the playground equipment is located. The park would be an attractive spot for day camping with children.
