ww2dbaseAfter the start of WW2, the Japanese Army took over the horse racing track in Busan (alternate Romanization: Pusan), Korea owned by the Chosen Racing Association and established it as the headquarters of troops in the region. It was taken over by the US Army in Sep 1945 and operated it under the name of Camp Hialeah. In the recent decades, the urban development of Busan enveloped the base. In 2006, the land was given back to the city of Busan, which had been developing it into the Busan Citizens Park.
