Yumezaki Park A place to chill out

Date Posted: 2007-12-06

Yumezaki Park sits along the ocean, not far from Nakagusuku Harbor on Okinawa’s east side.

There’s plenty of lush green grass around the park, including two grassy knolls ideal for laying back and watching the clouds drift by. Yumezaki Park isn’t big, but it’s tranquility makes it worthy of a relaxation visit. The entrance to the park is via stone stairs, not far from the harbor. Signs mark the way.

There are few organized activities or playground equipment, but there are rest areas with roofs and tables. There’s also a croquet course, where visitors often see senior citizens enjoying themselves. Parking is abundant, and there are rest room facilities. Park officials say pets are welcome, but that no swimming is permitted in nearby waters. Fishing from the pier is allowed.

To visit Yumezaki Park, from Awase Mosburger drive toward Gushikawa JUSCO. After passing JUSCO and the Awase Fishing Post on the right, turn right to Nakagusuku Harbor—there is a sign—and drive straight to the end of the landfill area, make a left turn, and look for the park sign.
