Other Info:
A track was permanently marked out here on a large cinder arena from 1976 to 1989 although the arena was built in 1975. The arena is still there although the track is only now marked out in the summer and comprises of a rectangular area at each end with a central grass area that separated what were the 'straights'. Pegs were used to mark out the curb on the curved sections. There were permanent field event facilities and a steeplechase water jump which are still there although the barrier has been removed and the other facilities are rather run down. The DT/HT circle is external to the track and is no longer as a park bench as has been placed immediately behind it. Milton Keynes AC (called Wolverton AAC until 1976) were based here from the 1960s when they stopped using the temporary grass track at Wolverton Park and, up until 1975, used a grass track that was only marked out in the summer. The venue was used for all their meetings from 1976 until 1989 when the synthetic Stantonbury Stadium opened.
