|FALKIRK (FIRS 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 earliest being located at Firs Park, on Firs Street, with reference 3° 46' W 56° 0' N. The track was built around the football ground of East Stirlingshire FC who first made it their home in 1921.|
|The independently run track opened on 25th October 1930, but had closed within 3 years, closing in 1933. East Stirlingshire continued to use the ground until 2008.|
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
a visit to
