"First Western-Style Horseracing Track"

Negishi Shinrin or literally Negishi Forest, is also known by several names that celebrate its past and present status as a place for play, enjoyment and relaxation. In 1866, the Yokohama Race Club chose Negishi as the first permanent Western-style horse racing track. Hence, another of the park's names is Negishi Keiba Kinen Koen or the Negishi Memorial Race Track Park. Racing continued here until 1943. You can still see the distinctive oval shape with the old blackened concrete stands on the side. After the war the Americans turned the area into a golf course. And, today it is one of the largest expanses of green space in Yokohama, and a prime spot for picnics and touch football games.
