Unique Park Designs

For the unique park designs, I selected parks from different regions in Japan.  

This is the worlds largest indoor "ocean" park. With the sky changing with the different time of day, a huge water slide and others fun activities to keep the whole family happy with their "day at the beach". Most popular during the winter season, this has become an international hot spot. 

Another great park design of Japan are the Zen Gardens which are open to the public to redesign themselves. Quiet and tranquil, these parks are made for fall and spring afternoon for the simple minded. 

An international phenomenon, these parks are on the rooftops of skyscrapers in the major cities of Japan, including Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto. The skyscrapers are filled with apartments, business and shopping malls. Parents are encouraged to drop of their kids for a fun filled day while they are free to conquer business and shopping with no concerns. 

This last park is a personal favorite, growing up in Japan I can still remember looking out of the mouth of this popular creature in the japanese fables. The entire design is within the body, keeping all those playing cool and protected from the sun. It is also perfect for hide-n-seek.
