A quick look back
The MGRAs first home and track was in Maribyrnong before moving to North Melbourne and then into the heart of Melbourne’s major city sporting precinct, Olympic Park. Monday nights from 1962 become an institution for Melbourne’s Greyhound Racing Community. The association held race meetings at Olympic Park up until 1999 when it then shifted out to Broadmeadows and a new state-of-the-art purpose designed and built greyhound racing track aptly named ‘The Meadows’. The Meadows remains the association’s home today.
The building of ‘The Meadows’ was a huge investment, but was also underpinned by a consideration towards supporting the local City of Hume community with a venue and events centre that could be utilised beyond racing activity. It sured up the associations future and gave rise to a jewel in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. The Meadows racetrack and venue today proudly holds the title as Australia’s most prestigious greyhound racing track.
