Henza Nishi Park is located on Henza Island just as you cross over Kaichu Doro bridge . It is a one-of-a-kind park made of cement and surrounded by whale and alligator benches and open grass fields.  The ladder leading up to the top is built at a weird slope that makes it hard for really small toddlers to climb. The smaller slide can be accessed by a climbing wall or rope ladder.  One swing is broken but one remains. The tarzan swings work but because of their age they are a bit noisy. There is a water fountain and a toilet on the far end park away from the playground.

This park has a roller slide, a skate park, swings, climbing ropes, a baseball field, and basketball courts, not to mention it is a short walk to the ocean. This park has clean air, a cool ocean breeze, and an unobstructed view of Okinawa’s beautiful sky. If it’s not too windy it’s also a fun bike ride to cross the bridges over to Henza, Miyagi,or Hamahiga Islands.

Konbu park has a combination playground with a triple slide. There is a baseball field, basketball court, and jogging path that loops around the park. This is a very popular park, especially when there is a little league game next door.

Agena Chuo has a playground and a large open grass field. It is built next to a war memorial  and sits high off the road, giving a nice view for those who climb to the top of the hill.

Like a lot of parks with amazing views, Mabu was built on a castle ruin. You can walk to the top for a panorama view of Okinawa’s east side. There are two play areas at the bottom, one looks like an obstacle course with a climbing net and the other has a big cement slide with some other playground equipment. You can’t see them both at the same time so be sure to walk around or you’ll miss out.
