The Kiba area developed as a timber town supplying lumber from the Edo to the Showa periods. It was designated as a disaster preparedness location in the Koto Redevelopment Plan of 1969, and the timber businesses moved to what is now Shin-Kiba. With the relocation, the area was developed as a forest park that is full of water and greenery.

Kiba Park was also designated in 1977 as a special park commemorating the 50th year of the reign of the Showa Emperor (Emperor Hirohito). Kasaibashi Street and the Sendaibori River divide the park into south, central, and north sections. The Kiba Park Ohashi Bridge connects the various sections.
