History and Outline

Toyama Prefecture drew up a plan to construct a traffic park for the citizen of the prefecture in 1983, and the plan was assessed as an important task of the traffic safety measures. After that, a practice bicycle course for traffic safety was constructed in 1984, and a traffic safety museum was constructed in 1985.
