Maizuru Shinkai Park (Maizuru Sea Park) (舞鶴親海公園)
This park was built in cooperation with the Kansai Electric Co., Inc., and newly opened in the Chitose Area of Maizuru City on August 3, 2004. This park has a 120-meter-long embankment for fishing, where people enjoy holidays with their families, because it is equipped with a safety fence around it. It also has 'Shinsui Pond' (literally a pond for enjoying water) to which sea water is supplied.
At Maizuru Power Plant's PR Hall 'El Mar Maizuru' which is modeled after a luxury ocean liner, you can enjoy Japan's first planetarium. It also has other facilities, such as a hall for learning about energy generation, and a museum of ocean liner history.
