By Phil Young, April 2022 from Bulletin 2/2022

A fascinating guided walk around the Harold Park area was led by long-time member Jan Macindoe on 17 March.

Thirteen people joined the afternoon stroll to learn about the history and development of the Tramsheds and the extensive tram network in Sydney, the recent naturalisation of Johnstons Creek, the construction and destruction of the Harold Park Raceway, the construction of the railway viaduct now used for light rail, and the reclamation of the creek alongside the Harold Park apartment development.

A couple of tales were told by members of their personal knowledge of SP bookmakers close to the raceway.

It was another excellent guided walk in the Society’s program of events for 2022.
