Other Info:

fiogf49gjkf0d
The stadium has always primarily been used for greyhound racing. The track and stadium cost 40,000 to build, and much of the material used for construction came from the old Brighton Aquarium, which was demolished in 1927. The site where the stadium was built was formerly occupied by a market garden belonging to A.J. Clark of the Clark's bread firm. The first greyhound race meeting was held on 2 June 1928. Today the greyhound racing takes place on a sand track around the edge of the cinder running track which is more or less intact. It is not known whether this was always the case. The running track was used for athletics until at least 1962 as it is in the AW 1962 list of tracks. It looks to be about 6 lanes all round but possibly wider down the home straight. The infield is a grass football pitch.
