Meaning ‘large street’ this isn’t a park in the sense of swathes of green land, but it’s a park nonetheless. Best viewed from the observation deck of the Sapporo TV Tower, this park is the home of plenty of annual festivals including being the main site for the Sapporo Snow Festival.

Aside from the Sapporo TV Tower, there are other attractions located nearby, including the Sapporo Clock Tower and Nijo Market.

The park is a ten-minute walk from Sapporo JR Station or you can catch the Subway to Ōdōri Station, which is located towards the eastern end of the park — as is Sapporo TV Tower. Ōdōri Park is also a 5-minute walk from the Susukino area.
