A man-made pond was built to prevent flooding in Koshigaya, and you can spend a relaxing time in the plaza by the pond

越谷にある、地域の水害対策の一環で設けられた調節池です。そのほとりにある広場は、通路を除きほぼ一面が芝生に覆われており、特に立ち入り禁止区域も設定されていないため、昼寝をしたりかけっこをしたりなど、思い思いにひと時を過ごす人を見かけます。園内にはステージが設けられ、イベントがある日などは混雑しますが、それ以外はそれ程人も多くなく、快適にひと時を過ごせると思います。 調節池の岸には成人の腰の高さ程度の柵しかないこと、広場はやや傾斜があることから、ボール遊び等では池にボールが落ちやすくなることに注意が必要です(実際にボール遊びをしている人は見られません)。一方、日除けや雨除けとして活用できる場所がほとんど無いことにも注意が必要です。 This is a regulating pond in Koshigaya that was established as part of the region's flood control measures. The plaza on the banks of the pond is almost entirely covered with grass, except for the pathways, and there is no designated no-go zone, so you can see people taking naps, running around, and spending time as they please. Almost the entire area is covered with grass, and there are no designated off-limits areas, so you can see people taking a nap, running around, or just enjoying their time. There is a stage in the park, and it gets crowded on days when there are events, but other than that, there are not so many people, so you can spend your time comfortably. There is only a waist-high fence along the shore of the pond, and the plaza is slightly sloped, so you need to be careful when playing with a ball, as the ball can easily fall into the pond (I have not seen anyone actually playing with a ball). In addition, it should be noted that there are almost no places that can be used as shade from the sun or rain.
