Take a stroll through the heart of Sapporo at Odori Park, a pleasant green space that stretches across 1.5 km (1 mile) and divides the city's into north and south sections. Established in 1869, the area first served as a dumping ground, only later developing into a public park. Enjoy a walk along the twelve blocks encompassed by the park, people watch, and admire numerous significant buildings, monuments, and city landmarks along the way.

  • 沒什麼特別,除了一片雪,又髒髒的,因住得近,如遠的話不建議特別跑一趟。春天,夏天可能景色會教不一樣。這公園附近就是購物,地下街就在公園底下。 
  • Fantastic park that is central to a lot of meet-ups and events in Sapporo. Just recently the "Yosakoi" festival. In the Summer this park is full of people drinking at the many beer gardens. Autumn there is the "Autumn Fest and in Winter there is the Snow festival. Really a place to enjoy the seasons of Sapporo.
  • Peaceful central park in the heart of the downtown core. Full of gardens and sculptures. Great for a calm walk and people watching. Near the observation tower is an open area where citizen gather to practice dances and put on public shows.
  • One of my favorite places in Sapporo. You can take a nice long walk along the park and the visit one of the many restaurants around the area. You must visit this place if you're in Sapporo.
  • The Snow Festival at Odori park is one of those things you must do before you die. Spectacular snow sculptures adorn the park during the festival amount with tasty Hokkaido street food.
  • Wow, what a spectacular park. I had a lot of fun during the snow festival, would love to return to Sapporo warmer weather, I bet this park would look great.
