Soshigaya Park is located in Kami-soshigaya of the Setagaya Ward of Tokyo, Japan. Large in size, the park is mainly used for recreational purposes and is situated along the Senkawa River. The park has been appropriately separated into two areas which each function in separate ways for separate needs of visitors.



Prior to being arranged into a park, the area now referred to as Soshigaya Park was nothing more than a large grassy area, basically going unused. In early 1943 there were big plans for the area as it was going to be Soshigaya Green Park and serve as a private facility perfect for large gatherings of the elite in Tokyo.

By 1975, the park was beginning to undergo major changes as the people of the city needed more free land to roam and participate in competing activities. At this time the government found it appropriate to alter the park into a recreational facility for everyone. This led to the park going public later that year.
