This area was the location of the estate of Matsudaira Hizen-no-kami and other people until the fall of the shogunate, and was a military parade ground through the Meiji period. It was later planned, designed, and developed as an urban park, becoming Japans first western-style modern park. The park celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2003. The enthusiasm of the park designers, who were cultural pioneers, can be seen in the large and small outdoor music halls and public hall. Those facilities are widely used even today.

The park’s flower beds bloom with colorful seasonal flowers throughout the entire year, making the park a place of relaxation for people working in the nearby business district.
