Osaka Board Game Park, Japan

From series “Top 16 Most Unusual and Original Parks and Gardens”
The unusual chess park has appeared several years ago in Osaka. Its design is entirely devoted to board games. This park, located on the bank of the channel, has special benches, paths for skateboarding, and flowerbeds with check pattern. It’s difficult to imagine that the area in which the park is located, a few years ago was abandoned and was literally drowning in waste and debris.

Osaka Board Game Park, Japan A few years ago, the city authorities decided to clean up the area. They started construction of a new luxury residence there. The park was created as a part of the project. The authors of the project were teammates from TOFU Architects company. They used the most affordable and simple materials, including cardboard, paper, vinyl, wood, and stainless steel.

Thus, the park is made entirely of environmentally friendly materials, so it’s very popular among families with children. This theme park is also used for its intended purpose. Locals come here to play board games and enjoy the picturesque canals. Next - Interactive Park i-City
