Kinkowan Park きんこうわんこうえん

Look for the H-II rocket! A great relaxing spot for the whole family.

Located next to Hirakawa Zoological Park in the southern part of Kagoshima City. With flowers and greenery filling its gentle slopes, the park features leisure facilities such as athletic fields, gardens, a rose garden, fragrant walking trails, a Rocket Plaza, a general-purpose plaza, an Overlook Plaza, and more, as well as playground equipment with a space-based theme and a Space Land. Adults and children alike can enjoy the rich natural setting. The rose garden is best viewed from spring to fall, when visitors can see more than 200 different types in bloom. The Kinkowan Park Flower Festival is held in May, while the seasonal Tanabata festival can be enjoyed in the summer.


Enjoy both Kinkowan Park and the neighboring Hirakawa Zoo for a day packed with fun!

Next to Kinkowan Park is Hirakawa Zoological Park, which also features an amusement park. Visitors to Kinkowan Park should head over to Hirakawa Zoological Park as well, for fun from dawn till dusk!
