A bustling civic park that is the gateway to a new lifestyle filled with enthusiasm, excitement, and encouragement.

In Spring 2023, the former Hiroshima Municipal Stadium will be transformed into a civic park. HIROSHIMA GATE PARK aims to be a space for everyone that is familiar and accessible, much like the old municipal ballpark. It also offers a peaceful place to unwind in your own way, surrounded by nature. Just as the people of Hiroshima cheered, rallied, and were inspired by the Hiroshima Carp, this is a space where we can cheer on those who will build our future and cultivate new interest in the city. A place not only for rest and relaxation, but also for exciting and inspiring experiences, overflowing with warmth and encouragement. The future of Hiroshima begins at this park.

  • Peace Promenade


    This is a cherry tree-lined walkway built with hopes for peace that follows a straight line from the Peace Memorial Park to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial.

  • Canopy Square


    A large, sheltered plaza designed to resemble a folded paper crane that blends harmoniously into the surrounding greenery.



    This open space transforms the natural terrain of the park into a space where children can play and run around.

  • Shori-no-Mori (Carp Victory Forest)


    A memorial site where visitors can view the Hiroshima Toyo Carp championship monument from a rest area made using benches from the old stadium.

  • Viewing Terrace


    A hill-shaped plaza on the north side of the Peace Promenade, featuring a staircase with water flowing down the center and camphor trees.

  • Hannover Garden


    A garden built to commemorate the goodwill and friendship between Hannover, Germany, and Hiroshima City.

From ballpark to bustling civic park

We are creating a park inside the area encompassed by the Peace Promenade, a symbol of hope for the future that connects the northern and southern points of the Peace Memorial Park, and two ribbon-like borders reminiscent of the shape of the former Hiroshima Municipal Stadium: a “green ribbon” of greenery that runs along the outer edge of the park, and a “universal ribbon” comprised of a concrete structure that encircles the main traffic area of the park and can be used by park visitors in a variety of ways. By connecting the different areas of the park in this way, we aim to create a lively, playful atmosphere and a sense of flow unique to this place and the way it brings people together.
