Not quite Stacky, I grew up close to that place. Basically the stand and only structures associated with the dog track were built close to the Western Road actually they werw running parallel with it.
I can remember a puddle the size of a lake which was static within the green area in the centre of the track for months on end.
So along came the know alls and they thought it was a good idea to put that building there were nothing was before. I say nothing before as where the original building's once stood is now a traffic lane, footpath and shubbery in front of the badly planned building.
