Naha City

Wanpaku means “rascal” in Okinawan, and the name fits. There is a double-sided cement slide with tunnels running through it so you can pop out of the tunnel and go down the slide. If your kids like cement slides this park is a must.

The entrance is small and narrow but the park leads up the hill and opens up to the playground area at the top. This park is completely secluded so you don’t have to worry about traffic. Instead, just focus on fun.

This park has a cement slide, a wooden playground, and some open areas to run around in. Some of the large trees around the park had forts built in them. There is an interesting stage-like area across from the playground.

This is like the Central Park of Naha, a patch of nature in a concrete jungle. The park is large and there are many entrances but in the middle of the park is a small river that draws crowds of children during summer vacation. Near the center of the park is a wooden playground and climbing nets, but the main attraction is the nature.
