35-15 Former beer and refreshment stand in Victoria Park

Just to the north-west of the former RAC building and close to Wakefield Road, is an unassuming, timber-framed, weatherboard building

This small blue building looks relatively modern but somewhat surprisingly, dates from the 1880s.

During the days of horse racing, it provided beer and other refreshments to race goers. In 2017 it was converted to a kiosk.

Now, walk south alongside Fullarton road, for more than half a kilometre, past the motor racing circuit and past the bicycle criterium track.

Your next stop is the central area of Victoria Park, including the sports fields.

Stop walking south, when you're just past the traffic lights on the corner of Fullarton Road and Grant Avenue
