Introduction, Recommendations and Barrier Free Functions
The second oldest park in Yokohama after the Yamate Park, the park grew together with the development of the city of Yokohama. Based on the treaty to improve the living condition of the foreigners living in Japan, some maintenance was done on the land of former brothels, and in Meiji Year 9 it opened as a park for both foreigners and the Japanese. After war, following the release of requisition in Showa Year 7, a number of baseball games such as high school baseball, university baseball, and amateur baseball, were held at ‘Heiwa Kyujo’, or, ‘Peace Stadium’, in the park.
Following the construction of the ‘Yokohama Stadium’ in Showa Year 53, some of the ageing facilities in the park were remodelled, and a Japanese garden style pond and the stream, fountains, and a square were made. In Showa 62, the park formed the present style with the newly installed water tank and the water square with four sculptures that produce water. The ‘Yokohama Stadium’ is home to the Yokohama DeNA BayStars.
There’s a communal, literally ‘multi-purpose’ toilet here. It is all equipped with required facilities compatible with ostomy and facilities for infants. It’s not spotless, but it functions well enough. If it were a bit cleaner, it would be a better accessible toilet.
