Other Info:
The track appears to be 300m and is on a black cinder-type hard play area known as the Hammer Complex and is owned by Belfast City Council. There are permanent concrete curbs although these were partially concealed by the top surface as of Feb 2000 and on first glance one would probably not realise that there is a track here. The home straight is partially extended at both ends to allow for 100m races. The track and football pitch in the infield are fully floodlit and this is potentially a very useful inner-city facility. The track is surrounded by a high fence but as of Feb 2000 one section of it is missing. The track is adjacent to Malvern Primary School, Forster Street, BELFAST, BT13 1HW and the Hammer Youth Resource Centre, Agnes Street, BELFAST, BT13 1SH but it is not directly associated with either. There is a pavilion at the track but there are no signs on it to indicate potential users. There are plans to change the hard-play area into just a football pitch so presuambly this would involve replacing the cinder surface with astroturf.
