** 12/2017 Update: The pirate ship was removed. ***
Metropolitan Shiokaze Park (都立潮風公園) is a great spot for your pirate loving kids. It has a beautiful and clean water and greenery promenade lined with tall Washington Palms and Cherry trees. It`s a beautiful sight walking from the station to the end of the Promenade to Tokyo Bay. It almost makes me feel like we`re back in California.
The large, wooden pirate ship is hidden at the end of the promenade on your right. It`s well maintained with multiple levels, rope netting to climb, corridors to hide in, and slide. Little O loved exploring the ship, and playing in the small sand pit located at the bow.
There is also a large fountain that kids can splash in, great views of the bay, lots of green for picnicking and BBQ area on the North end of the park. There are two restroom facilities (one close to the parking lot and other near the fountain) as well as drink and ice cream vending machines. A great spot to escape the hustle and bustle of Odaiba and relax.
