|FALKIRK (BROCKVILLE PARK) GREYHOUND STADIUM
This site is not an official website for the track shown here and is neither approved or endorsed by the stadium. I am indebted to Richard English for helping to construct this page.
|The Scottish town of Falkirk has had 3 greyhound tracks in the past, the second of which was located on Hope Street at Brockville Park with reference 3° 47' W 56° 0' N. The track was built around the perimeter of the local football team, Falkirk FC, which had been its home since 1885 and remained the teams home until 2003. It was an independently run track which first opened on 16th July 1932.|
|It closed just 3 years later on 13th May 1935. The site on which the former track once stood is now a supermarket.|
I am grateful to Jon Seddon for the following link to a map showing the whereabouts of the old track
|This section gives a comprehensive picture of
the badges produced by the track throughout the ages, but only provides the briefest of
glimpses of its history. For those wishing to undertake further research we can recommend
