[Park Week] Wakamatsu Park
If you're looking for a quiet little place to enjoy some fun in the sun Wakamatsu Park is the place to be. Located in the vicinity of Camp Foster this park has a little something for everyone. For the kids there is a bunch of jungle gym equipment as well as a rollie slide and swings. There are also large grassy areas to play catch or tag if that's the type of thing that you're kids are interested in. For those who want to play sports there are tennis courts as well as baseball diamonds.
There are also bathrooms located in this park which is a definite plus. The bathrooms are also maintained regularly so you do not have to cringe if you find that nature calls.
For those who are history buffs this is also a historical site. You can walk just off on one of those paths that leads to some interesting sites such as the tomb pictured above. There is also information in English so that you can read about the tomb itself.
Overall this is a great little place to visit. It is not as big as some other parks that you may find on Okinawa but you really can't beat the location. If you've gone to this park let us know what you thought. How did the kids like it? Comment below!
