Other Info:
This ground was the second Hampden Park football ground used by Queen's Park FC and it had a cinder track around it when it opened on 25th October 1884. It was renamed New Cathkin Park in 1903 when Queen's Park moved to the present and third Hampden Park which is about a quarter of a mile south of this ground. The ground then became the home of the football club Third Lanark Athletic Club until their demise in 1967. It is now one of the great relics of British football as the pitch is still there and some of the terracing also but the main stand has been demolished. The ground is now a municipal park and part of the larger Myrtle Park. There is still a track of about 10 feet width around the ground and is thought to be about 350 yards in length although it is in very poor condition.
