Ajiro Playground Park (網代公園), better known as the Slide Park, is located near the Azabu Juban shopping street. My kids love this park because of the large cement slide that kids slide down on old pieces of cardboard. There are usually some old pieces lying around, but recommended to bring your own. There is also a great roller slide that is popular with little ones. If you have a 1-3 year old they have a separate play area with a sandbox. Ajiro Park has plenty of space for kids to run around after a morning of shopping and some kid-friendly restaurants to dine at in the area after play. Ajiro Park is also the centre of all the kids games during the August Azabu Juban Festival.
The park is located a quick walk from Buzen Udon shop and Dumbo Donuts – both amazing!

If you are walking around the neighborhood, search out all the Azabu sculptures – makes a great game for kids of all ages.
