Other Info:
The track was originally 400m/440y cinder. It was replaced with an astro turf pitch with a 200m track around the more southerly length of the pitch and the eastern end. The rest of the perimeter of the pitch was just squared off although there is a narrow section of synthetic surface around it. The park fell into disuse after someone broke their leg at a joint on the pitch and the council would not re-lay the pitch. Since then the stand has been set alight, the ground closed and the astroturf lifted. It is believed the running track went at the same time as the pitch. The place is now locked up so there is no public access.
