Inokashira Park (井の頭恩賜公園, Inokashira Onshi Kōen?) straddles Musashino and Mitaka in western Tokyo, Japan.
Inokashira Pond (井の頭池) and the Kanda River water source (神田上水, Kanda jōsui?), established during the Edo period, are the primary sources of the Kanda River.
The land was given to Tokyo in 1913. On May 1, 1918, it opened under the name Inokashira Onshi Kōen (井の頭恩賜公園), which can be translated as, "Inokashira Imperial Gift Park". Thus the park was considered a gift from the emperor to the general public. This was the first time in Tokyo that a park was founded in such a manner.

Famous quotes containing the word park:
“Borrow a child and get on welfare.
Borrow a child and stay in the house all day with the child,
or go to the public park with the child, and take the child
to the welfare office and cry and say your man left you and
be humble and wear your dress and your smile, and dont talk
—Susan Griffin (b. 1943)
