Albert Park had a short lived greyhound track around the pitch from 13 May 1989 until 1999. The track was a fairly tight circuit, heavily banked and raced over 270, 450 and 630 yards. The greyhound operation closed amidst controversy after a track manager was convicted of animal cruelty after using hares as live bait. Greyhound racing's governing body the Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB) were unable to impose any punishment because the track chose to be independent and was not affiliated to the GBGB.
