Shiribetsu River Park

A Riverside Park & Recreation Space

By Chris Barnes    - 1 min read

The Shiribetsu River Park is located on the outskirts of Kutchan and runs parallel to the beautiful Shiribetsu River. The park features three free tennis courts that are reasonably well maintained, a large bicycle/jogging track and numerous undercover park benches all surrounded by gardens. Another impressive feature of this park is the 18 hole miniature golf course. The best place to enter the park is off of Route 5, opposite from the Kutchan Max Value and Homac stores. At this end of the park you will find the park golf course, numerous gardens and the start of the bicycle/jogging track. Towards the end of the park you will find three free public tennis courts and more recreation space. The park is quite popular with local residents who enjoy exercising to the sound of the flowing Shiribetsu River. The park is only accessible in spring, summer and autumn as thick snow completely covers the park during the winter.
