Ishiyama Ryokuchi is a big park located along the National Road 453. Originally it was a quarry for Sapporo Nanseki and in 1993 it was renewed as a park国道453号線を走っていると、大きな公園が見えてくる。「石山緑地」は、かつて札幌軟石採掘場であった場所を利用して、1993年に造られた公園。札幌軟石とは北海道で採れる凝灰岩のこと。札幌や小樽周辺では古くから建物を建てる際に利用されきた。小樽運河倉庫群や札幌市資料館日本基督教団札幌教会などは、この札幌軟石を使って建てられた代表的な建物だ。

. Sapporo Nanseki is a kind of tuff produced in Hokkaido. It had been used for buildings around Sapporo and Otaru including warehouses along the canal in Otaru, Sapporo Shiryokan and Sapporo Christ Church.

Ishiyama Ryokuchi is consist of two blocks. The North block has a height that offers wonderful views. From the observation terrace we can see Mt.Moiwa and whole Johzankei area. There are also a tennis court, gate ball course and wooden playground equipments.

The South block is an area surrounded with rocks and looks like foreign heritages. It was produced by an art group CINQ that includes five sculptors, Kouichi Nagano, Takashi Maruyama, Asuka Kunimatsu, Yasuo Matsukuma and Keiji Yamaya. It shows many sculptures in the open air .

Many art objects made of stones are seen here and there at “Gogo no Oka.” In “Spiral Spring” children enjoy playing with water. “Akai Sora no Hako” (photo) is an unique jungle gym which leans into two directions. Many events like concerts and art festivals are held in “Negative Mound,” that spreads stares made of Sapporo Nanseki.

This is a park for all people. We can learn history of Hokkaido and enjoy art at the same time.
