History

Orginially farmland, Onchan Village Commissioners purchased the land after World War II for the building of new homes and a recreation area. The main feature of the park was the stadium. Started in 1948, it took 3 years to make the first ever banked cycle track. The park costing £50,000 included a grandstand, cafe, changing rooms, bowling green, tennis courts, putting green, miniature gold and a children play area. Once completed it proves itself the pride of the Island. Since then many improvements have been made, including the creation of a boating lake. The stadium has also undergone change with a move from cycle racing to karting, stock cars and football. An indoor soft play area is also now available.

Visitors can also enjoyed the added benefit of a full service restaurant as well as a coffee shop.
