大宮駅の北に位置する自然豊かな公園です。大宮駅より東武鉄道の北大宮駅からの方が近いですが、大宮駅から氷川神社の参道を経由して公園に行く人も多く見られます。但し徒歩でも15分以上を要します(大宮駅からのアクセスの場合、日光や雨を凌げる場所は多くありません)。一方で駐車場が多く点在しているため、車を利用して来る人を多く見かけます。
園内には野球場・競輪場・競泳場・スタジアム等様々な競技施設だけでなく、日本庭園や小規模な動物園まであり、総合的なエンターテインメントスポットと言えます(但し競技施設は常時利用できるわけではありません)。園内のそれ以外の部分は木々で覆われているおり、開けた場所はあまり多くありません。主に散歩やジョギングで利用する人が多く、ボール等で遊ぶ人はほとんど見かけません。
この公園が最も美しくなるのは、園内を覆うように咲き誇る桜の季節です。多くの人が桜を愛でに訪れます。一方でゴミ箱は常時ですら置かれていない状況ですので、基本的にゴミは各自で持ち帰り家で処分することが推奨されています。

The park is located north of Omiya Station and is rich in nature. It's closer to Kita-Omiya Station on the Tobu Railway than to Omiya Station, but many people go to the park from Omiya Station via the approach to the Hikawa Shrine. However, it takes more than 15 minutes to get there on foot (there are not many places to shelter from the sun or rain if you go from Omiya Station). On the other hand, there are many parking lots scattered around the park, so you will see many people coming by car.
The park is a comprehensive entertainment spot, with various athletic facilities such as a baseball field, bicycle race track, swimming pool, and stadium, as well as a Japanese garden and a small zoo (although the athletic facilities are not always available). The rest of the park is covered with trees, and there are not many open spaces. Most people use the park for walking or jogging, and there are few people playing with balls.
This park is at its most beautiful when the cherry trees that cover the park are in full bloom. Many people come here to enjoy the cherry blossoms. On the other hand, there are no trash cans in the park at all times, so people are basically encouraged to take their trash home and dispose of it at home.

Super 2nd Street is located about 800 meters from Miyahara Station. There you can find lots of quality used items. We went there looking for Coca Cola items and we were not disappointed.. Will go again in our next trip to Tokyo.

Huge park, lovely to walk around in the changing seasons and lots for kids to do. There is a fairly large, but rather dated playground with a few amusement park style rides in the middle. A small Zoo, which if you can get over the small cages is very enchanting. They have a native Japanese Bear next to a Hyena - where else in the world will you see that combo! The keeper gave a very informative talk about these two animals at Feeding time. Lots of mature trees and space for picnics under them. There is a Soccer Stadium and it is home to Hikawa Shrine. We visited the Shrine at the New Year in 2014 and loved being part of a major temple during a big event - the street leading to the Shrine is filled with colourful vendors selling all types of food.

Inside the park is a small restaurant/food stall where you can buy Yakisoba and the like and on busy day stalls are set up selling shaved ice and the normal fare. Very suitable place to bring a cooler and your own picnic.

Overall the park can be a nice place to get outdoors for a few hours, have a walk, picnic and play.

You can walk to the park form Omiya Station, it takes about 20mins. Or take the Tobu Noda line from Omiya to Omiya Koen Station - it is a 5 min train ride and reduces the walk to about 5 mins. There is a connivence store near Omiya Koen station which is a good place to stock up on snacks for the kids etc.

I drove there once, but could not really find a car park, there does not appear to be an official one??? I ended up parking in the museum car par next to the park, but it is small and only fits approx. 30 cars, we were very lucky! Lots of locals ride their bikes to the park and there is free bicycle parking at the entrance.

Great place to view the cherry blossoms. A nice large park in the city. Always seems to be something going on during the weekends.

When I was a kid, I often visited here in order to watch soccer and baseball games.40 years later, this park is still quiet and peaceful. Here is still a center of sports and culture in Omiya.Omiya has one of the largest station in Japan.The area is so noisy.If you are tired of noisy Omiya streets, please visit this park.

Went in late March right when the cherry trees were blossoming and the Cherry Tree Festival was going on. To avoid a large crord, we went during the week on a cool day. The sun managed to peek out every now and then to take some great pictures of the park. Lots of varying festival vendor foods to choose from.

Omiya Park is a lovely place to escape to and sit and contemplate life. The plum blossoms start early March leading into the cherry blossoms then azaleas in May. There are a few seats around the edge but I suggest bringing a sheet to sit on the ground. Remember you will need to take your rubbish away with you as bins are limited.

Omiya Park has been selected as "Top 100 Cherry Blossom Viewing Sites in Japan" in Saitama Prefecture's first prefectural park in the Omiya Ward and Saema Ward of Saitama City.
The park are planted about 1,200 cherry trees in centering on Someiyoshino (a kind of cherry blossoms tree). 
One of the best cherry blossoms sites in this park is free open space. The open space is surrounded by a lot of cherry blossoms. The weeping cherry blossoms and double cherry blossoms are also blooming, please find a cherry blossom viewing position with your family and friends. "Cherry Blossoms Festival" is held during the flowering period of cherry blossoms in this park and many stalls are opened on the road along free open space.
