Main content starts here.

Zenpukuji Pond, whose water is so clear that it was once used to supplement the Kanda water supply, serves as the center of this park. The amount of water feeding the pond is large, making it one of the top three spring-fed ponds in the Musashino area. A temple that was once located in the area is said to be the origin of the pond’s name.

The pond is separated into upper and lower ponds, and has a total combined area of about 37,000 m2 (47% of the entire park). Ducks, little grebes, moorhens, and other waterfowl as well as kingfishers visit this pond.
