A reader reminds me that athletics meetings were held on Victoria Square - formerly known as the Government Acre - before the move to Athletic Park on the Greenbelt at the Hamilton Road (SH1) Vogal Street corner. As I recall running at least the one meeting on the square the move must have happened around 1960 when I was intermediate / middle school age - please correct me if I am wrong. Athletic Park is on the left as you slow for the 50k sign travelling into Cambridge from the north west on the Hamilton Cambridge road.
