Memorable Moments:

This park was built by Henry V. Lucas. A track went around the diamond for cycling and sprinting. There were three entrances to the park. The main one doubled as a ticket office and had stairs leading to the grandstand, and another lead out to an area that had parking for over a hundred vehicles.
