Yumenoshima Park (夢の島公園, Yumenoshima Kōen) is a sports park in Yumenoshima, Kōtō Ward, Tokyo, Japan. It was made by improving a landfill site called Yumenoshima, which had been the final disposal site for garbage from 1957 until 1967. Yumenoshima will be the site of the archery event of the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020.
