The track opened on 3 August 1927 and attracted a crowd of over 10,000. A major event was introduced called the Edinburgh Cup-Greyhounds which took place every year from 1933. In 1970 and 1986 the Greyhound Racing Association invested into the stadium and the facilities were modernised. In 1987 and 1988 the track hosted the prestigious Scottish Greyhound Derby, the only time the event was run outside Glasgow.
In 1988 the ownership of the stadium changed twice. First it was sold to local businessman Norrie Rowan for £1.8m, who then sold it on to Coral for an instant profit at £2.2m. GRA had cut their ties with Scotland and therefore lost the rights to the Scottish Derby. In 1992 Coral sold to Eddie Ramsay who in turn experienced financial difficulties in 1995 and sold the site for redevelopment for housing.
