Remember the circus tents in Burwood Park? Remember when we drive down King Street it was the scene of an earlier urban 'battle' when the park was given up to the roadway as I seem to recall.
I am mistaken. This is really Birdwood Park not Burwood.
A smaller version of Birdwood Park remains in between the roadways.
An old stadium was near this end of the park.
I think the stadium held popular housie games but of course would have had other uses.
Marketown was built there with something of the circus or stadium theme in mind.
