Ukima Park is a large area park which covers several wards of Tokyo, Japan. The Itabashi Ward and the Kita Ward both entail a part of the park. The main feature of Ukima Park is its pond called the Ukima Pond which takes up over half the area of the park.
Aside from the pond the park also features many great sports centers for active children and adults.
Ukima Park was officially established and publicly opened in late 1985. Prior to this the land was mainly waterside open area which many used as an unofficial park.
