Shioiri Park is a large multi-purpose park on the banks of the Sumida River in Arakawa Ward, near Minami-Senju Station.

Although approximately 1.5km upstream from the launching area for the Sumidagawa Fireworks Festival, the park affords an uninterrupted view of the fireworks. The area near Suijino Bridge has the best views.

The park is popular throughout the year with joggers, dog walkers, picnickers and families. To the west of the river is an area with BBQ tables and BBQs for hire during summer.
