Beneath the park, a gorge like rounded path operates through specialised retail store, entertainment and cusine locations. Various kinds of cusine places are situated on the 6th floor, and stores are situated on the second to fifth surfaces. There is also an amphitheater for events, as well as space for small personal veggie gardens and cart stores.
When Osaka's baseball ground shut its gates, it started out the door to a primary redevelopment opportunity in a new commercial region close to Namba Train Place, the first stop from Kansai Terminal. Given the location, owner Nankai Electric Train asked Jerde to create a entrance that would change Osaka's identification. So Jerde designed Namba parks as a large park, a organic involvement in Osaka's heavy and severe city condition.
“Namba parks makes a new organic experience for Osaka that enjoys the connections of people, lifestyle and recreation,” described Jon Jerde of The Jerde Collaboration who developed the park.
