Higashida Oodoori Park

Higashida Odori Park is located on the former site of the Kitakyushu Expo-Festival 2001. Built as a manifestation of a low-carbon footprint in urban development, the park was designed with an awareness of the connection between living things, people, and greenery. As a public space, it incorporates the latest technologies, such as a naturally cooling bioswale that allows rainwater to permeate the soil and evaporate over time; fruit trees that attract birds; and a water fountain where dragonflies can thrive. The park will feature large-scale symbolic artworks on sustainability and host community-based art projects for citizens to join.
