The Ministry of Defense and the Urban Development Authority has carried out numerous development programs across the country. One such project is the renovation of the Colombo race course and its surroundings currently being carried out under several phases.

 

The Colombo Race Course was once a symbol of the city of Colombo. It first opened to the public in 1893 and at the time was considered to be the best race course in South Asia in terms of Size, prosthesis
facilities and design. In 1922, price
the Colombo race course became the first race course in Asia to be fitter with a totalisator which was a technological breakthrough of the time.

 

The race course was not only famous for its sporting activities. When War broke out in 1939 and the world was dragged in to another global conflict, the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the Naval Air Arm of the Royal Navy used the race course grounds as a makeshift airfield. After the end of the Second World War, The Sri Lankan armed forces used it as a landing zone for Air Force transport helicopters while the Army used the adjoining buildings as a temporary garrison. Some of the buildings were used by the University of Colombo as well.

 

Much of its past glory was lost after the war with a few functions being relegated from time to time, and it soon became neglected, abandoned and ultimately forgotten. The race course and its surrounding structures 27 acres in all had remained an eyesore in the heart of Colombo for nearly fifty years.

 

Under the leadership of his Excellency president Mahinda Rajapakse, new plans were drawn up to reconstruct, renovate and refurbish the once forgotten race course as part of the modernization of the city of Colombo and was inducted into phase five of the Independent

 

Avenue Development Project. Under the supervision of the secretary of defense Mr. Gotabaya Rajapakse, the Urban Development Authority and the Ari Lanka Army were entrusted with the task of restoring the once great race course.

 

The 6th Army Engineers regiment together with the Central Consultancy bureau carried out renovations while still maintaining the original architectural structure and features of the buildings. The project was completed at an estimated cost of Rupees 125 million, and is to no doubt become one of the leading tourist attractions in Colombo.

 

Even though much of the original design is still intact, there have been many new additions to the race course premises. For example the newly renovated mini-stand is comprised of a Pavilion, Restaurants, dress boutiques, handy crafts and gift shops.

 

The race course ground itself has been converted to an international level rugby ground together with its grand stand, and is expected to be the main venue for any and all international rugby events to be held in the island.
