Komazawa Olympic Park began as the site of the second stadium for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. So it was originally designed and built as a venue for sports such as track & field, soccer, wrestling and volleyball but was soon opened to the public after the games came to a close.
The Komazawa Olympic Park of today is still a great place for recreation and exercise as it is a very popular location for jogging, walking or just getting outdoors and enjoying lots of natural greenery (especially for the local residents of Setagaya and Meguro wards). The park offers recreational facilities for almost anyone – a large circular jogging track shaded by trees, a central plaza with lots of open space, bicycle paths, a Kyudo field (Japanese archery), several baseball fields (including one indoor), and several other top notch indoor sports facilities.
It is also interesting to that the park is in both Meguro and Setagaya – the border between the 2 wards cuts through the middle of the park – so the park has two addresses.
