Nakajima Park (Nakajima-koen) is a spacious park to the south of Susukino and to the west of the Toyohira River.

The park features a large central pond—which is frozen over in winter. It is also home to the Kitara Sapporo Concert Hall, an astronomical observatory and the historical Hōheikan—a building constructed in 1880 and now used as a wedding and meeting venue.

When there is snow on the ground, the small hills in the park serve as sledding slopes for both residents and visitors.
