Other Info:
Cardiff Arms Park, more commonly associated with rugby, hosted the 1958 Commonwealth Games and a cinder track was laid for the games alongside the pre-existing greyhound track. The running track was subsequently removed and the cinders transferred to Maindy Stadium although Roath Harriers did hold their 3 mile championship on the track before the Games. The greyhound track was removed after the finish of racing in 1977. The ground was rebuilt in 1999 and renamed the Millennium Stadium and they have a website which includes a history of the ground. Cricket also used to be played here and another good history is available on the Cricinfo website.
