Ōdōri Kōen information

Lonely Planet review

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 true haven in the heart of the city. The park is a 10-minute walk south from JR Sapporo Station along Ekimae-dōri.
