Izumi no Mori, just a few minutes from Atsugi Naval Air Facility heading toward Yamato Station.
The road drops low with cherry blossoms blooming on one side of the road. There is a parking space for a few cars. Getting there on foot or by bicycle is practical except for the climb out. A wetland park with paths winding through the trees attracts some lovely birds: egrets, kingfishers, ducks and such. On the other side of the road is a trout fishing suciness where one can rent a rod and catch a few fish for the grill. Walking about the woods is accomplished in a rather short time, but the isolation from buildings and noise makes the visit worthwhile.

This park is HUGE for Japanese standard. Your kids, dogs, and yourself can enjoy and relax. Especially there is a bouncing air trampoline that your kids can have fun with. There is also a clean BBQ area that you can use it with a fee. The only thing negative about this place is the loud jets that flies right above you.

Interesting stone statue everywhere. So many in such a small place. 300 yen admission fee is charged. This temple is famous for having good relationship with your partner. Parking space available in premises.

We visited Kodomo-no-Kuni on Children's Day 2016 in Japan with our seven year old and one of her friends, and had a fun day out.
We decided to train from Tokyo, because of concerns about traffic during Golden Week. (After seeing the queues of cars waiting to park, this was not a decision I regretted.) We hooked up with the Hanzomon line at Nagata-cho, which became an express train on the Denentoshi line at Shibuya. We changed to the (crowded) Kodomo-no-Kuni line at Nakatsuto. The trip took about an and a quarter from central Tokyo, and cost ¥600 each.
Kids entered for free on the day we went (normally about ¥400) Adults paid ¥600. Predictably, on this day, a public holiday dedicated to children, it was busy and crowded, with a festive atmosphere. Many people had brought some kind of tent/sun shade and had set up to make a day of it. The weather was fantastic.
There was a useful map of the park provided on entry. We headed for the play equipment (marked as 102 on the map). We caught the end of a street show by a hoola hoop artist. There were a couple of short flying foxes, swings, and a climbing frame/cubby house. There were orderly and patient queues for most of the activities. My impression was that most of this equipment was pitched at the 4-6 age group.
We moved on to the 110m roller slide. Queued for about 30 mins. Once again, pleasant but tame. From there, we went to the pond which had paddle boats (very long queues), visited the hanging bridge, checked out frisbee golf and played a little badminton. In between times we ate our own body weight in onigiri and other snacks, and saw other attractions - bike riding area, and miniature train. There looked to be a number of pleasant leafy walks to do. A lot of the Japanese kids seemed to be engaged in a treasure hunt.
On the day we were there, there was a squadron of food vans selling a range of tempting looking matsuri fare. In retrospect, I probably wouldn't have loaded up at the kombini before we entered.
We ran out of steam after 3-4 hours and headed back the Tokyo the way we had come.
My overall impression was that it was a great green space for kids to run around in, and that it would be well worth a return visit when it wasn't quite so busy. It was also a very inexpensive day out. Recommended.

Very spacious and well kept. We have been to Ueno Zoo and Tama Zoo, and this one is our favorite. Lots of spaces for resting and eating. Numerous areas for the kids to play. Not that crowded. The only poor thing though is you still have to get on a bus to reach the zoo, unlike Tama and Ueno Zoo where they are near train stations. But that's ok. My kids loves bus rides.
