Shirokita Park

An old park made on the Yodogawa riverbed where seasonal flowers can be enjoyed, such as cherry blossoms in spring, lilies in early summer, and chrysanthemums in autumn.

Basic information

This park opened in the 9th year of the Showa Period (1934) on the Yodogawa riverbed. Within its 9.5 hectare-expanse, various seasonal traditions of Osaka are featured, such as cherry blossoms in April and the Shirokita chrysanthemum exhibition held in November every year. In the Lily Garden, 13,000 lilies of 250 species can be roughly divided into three types, Edo, Ise, and Higo. In May and June, they blossom into beautiful colors of bluish purple, white and yellow, and this scenery has been selected as one of the "Top One Hundred Greenery Scenes of Osaka." Also, below the dike of the Yodogawa there is an area called wando (a pond-like area along a river enclosed by spur dikes etc.), creating habitat for some remarkable animals and plants. We suggest taking an enjoyable walk in this abundance of nature.
