Stride for Victory, Part I: Busan-Gyeongnam Racecourse Park

Busan-Gyeongnam Racecourse Park (Hanja: 釜山慶南競馬公園) in 929 Garak Boulevard/Garak-daero, Beombang-dong 152-beonji, Busan Gangseo-gu, officially opened to the public in September 2005, was host to the horseback riding events of the 2002 Busan Asian Games. 

The park spans an area of over 1,243,101㎡, reaching into both Busan Metropole (Beombang-dong, Gangseo-gu) and Southern Gyeongsang a.k.a Gyeongnam Province (Suga-dong, Gimhae City) and boasts stands seating up to 300,000 people, 98 sports facilities, 3 sand race tracks, and a parking facility. Race tracks are wider than the lanes on a highway, providing viewers with fast and thrilling races. Races are held every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and a total of 12 races take place each racing day. 

Not just a favorite spot for horse-racing, the park also contains an ecological park, a children's horseback riding site, flower beds, and the largest in-line skating park and cycling lanes in the country, making it a favorite leisure spot for citizens of all ages.
