It was built after Furukawa Water Park on between Edogawa and Shinkawa River. It is 3,930 meters long park from Sugawara Bashi Bridge to Nakagawa River.

Now the juncture of the rivers is under Arakawa River.
Moreover, Kafu Nagai, a famous writer in early 20th century, had often visited areas around Komatsugawa from 1948 to 1951.

Komatsugawa Sakaigawa Water Park

The History of Komatsugawa Sakaigawa River

Komatsugawa Sakaigawa River was named since it went down in between Higashi and Nishi Komatsugawa Village; 'Sakai' means a border. The river started Kami Komatsugawa Village (now 4 chome Higashi Shinkoiwa in Katsushikaku), then it went down and issued to Shinkawa River near the border of Nishi Komatsugawa and Funabori Village.
In 1950's, the areas along Komatsugawa Sakaigawa River were urbanized; sewage from residents and factories ran into it and the water was polluted. Since drainage ditches started working, the sewage finished running into it and it became a water park.
