The greyhound track in the Ynys area of the Welsh town of Aberdare was situated at 3° 26' W 51° 42' N. It operated as an independent track, opening on 26th December 1931. The track was situated on Cwmbach Road on the perimeter of the local Rugby League team.

Greyhound racing ceased in 1947 and the site of the former track is now part of the playing fields of the local school.

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
