The area now known as Sengenyama Park was once a large part of the Tama plateau which was washed out by several rivers including the Tama River. After this, the part of the park land was used as the Tama Cemetery.

Recently the park was developed more for recreational purposes and picnic tables, camping grounds, and special equipment was placed for everyone to enjoy.
