Diagonal from Naha Main Place, the large shopping center with the Cinema Q movie theatre, Ameku Park has tennis courts, picnic areas, playgrounds, a skateboard area, a basketball court, and most importantly, a padded 850 meter path on its perimeter. The last 200 meters of the path are a bit steep, but the soft material (which looks like brick) is very easy on the legs. The parking lot is locked at 9:00 pm, and the lights go out at 10:00, but there is still enough light from the street, and you can run here as late as you like. I usually prefer to run after 9:00 because the path is rather crowded with walkers and people walking their dogs from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm. Even at those busy times, however, I have never had to alter my pace. I also like that the distance is marked every 100 meters. I live right across the street, so I do most of my running here.
