Ōdōri Kōen information
Ōdōri Kōen is the long, block-wide park that splits Sapporo into its north–south grid. Fully 13 blocks (1.5km) long, with the TV Tower at its eastern end, the park plays host to the city's major events and festivals. Beautifully manicured flower gardens match the green lawns, overhanging trees and the plentiful artwork, fountains, statues and benches to relax on. A haven in the heart of the city, the park is a 10-minute walk south from JR Sapporo Station along Eki-mae-dōri.
